Chamisa urges fasting, prayers for crunch Wednesday hearing

Chamisa urges fasting, prayers for crunch Wednesday hearing
Published: 20 August 2018 (381 Views)
DAYS before the Constitutional Court (ConCourt) sits to hear his petition against last month’s presidential elections, MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa has called on Zimbabweans to fast and pray for victory, NewZimbabwe.com reported.

Chamisa lost the July 30 presidential poll by a slim margin after the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) announced Zanu-PF leader and President-Elect Emmerson Mnangagwa as winner with 50.8% against the opposition frontman's 44.3%.

But the 40-year-old losing candidate has petitioned the highest court in the land to reverse the decision, arguing that the results officially announced were “fake” and instead he should either be declared winner, or a run-off be called.

On Sunday Chamisa clad in all-white with a rocky background, released a video imploring citizens to join him in petitioning God to intervene in the court proceedings.
