Zimbabwe court upholds President Mnangagwa's election win

President Emmerson Mnangagwa's win in last month's polls has been upheld by Zimbabwe's Constitutional Court.

The opposition MDC Alliance had brought the legal challenge saying the vote was  marred by "mammoth theft and fraud", but this was rejected by the court.

Delivering the verdict, Chief Justice Luke Malaba called allegations of tampering "bold and unsubstantiated".

It was Zimbabwe's first election since long-time leader Robert Mugabe was ousted from power last year.
