Opposition parties told a Sadc Electoral Advisory Council led by Leshele Thohlane that President Emmerson Mnangagwa ascended to power through a military coup.
The report by the pre-election team is expected to be tabled before the bloc’s regional leaders. In his summary of the meetings, Thohlane said opposition parties had made it clear Mnangagwa is a product of a coup. Said Thohlane:
The meeting was clear and the message is that the dispensation (in the country) comes from a clear coup therefore go and tell your principals that we are under military rule and how do you expect legitimate elections under such a dispensation that is the message we got and we will take.
