MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa has said that the opposition has no confidence that the judiciary system will impartially resolve electoral matters. Responding to advise from President Emmerson Mnangagwa and The Elders chairman Kofi Annan, Chamisa told supporters in Bulawayo,
I was given enough evidence about how postal voting was conducted. Police officers voted in the presence of their seniors. Yes, and this is why we went to court. But I heard the court was saying something else, which is also an issue about our courts in Zimbabwe.
Our courts should be sanctuaries of justice, our courts should be citadels of justice, not to be extensions of partisan politics because you might be found on the wrong side of the law. It’s very important for our courts to be independent, it is very important for our courts to be the last bastion of justice. We see Zanu-PF encroaching into the courts.
Yesterday (Friday),(President) Mnangagwa was now saying, Chamisa, if you are not happy, go to the courts. We are not dull; I will not go into your bedroom. . . I will not go that route. We will go to the people, and we will discuss this issue in the court of public opinion. Let the people decide. . .
