MDC Alliance principal and former minister of finance Tendai Biti has said that the international community is not going to accept President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s victory due to alleged rigging. Biti went to on to say, that the flawed election will have negative consequences for the country as no money would come into the country. Speaking to the Daily Maverick, Biti said
The international community is not going to be fooled by this madness. We will make sure they don’t get a cent. I can’t tell you how but I can tell you we have done it before
You can rig elections, but you can’t rig legitimacy. You can rig elections, but you can’t rig the economy, you can’t rig trust and confidence. I don’t know why the State never learns. You can’t rig the social contract, you can’t rig decency, you can’t rig trust.
