Emmerson Mnangagwa

Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa won the election result court challenge against opposition leader Nelson Chamisa, MDC Aliiance.

Levitsky and Way’s “four arenas of contestion”:

1. The electoral arena; 2. Legislative arena; 3. The judicial arena; 4.the media arena.

Mnangagwa’s new regime has proven to be in control of all four arenas of contention during this election period.

Mnangagwa is an iron fist in a velvet glove. The US sanctions of top Znau-PF members, including Mnangagwa is applauded.
