Update: Biti found guilty

MDC-T alliance principal Tendai Biti has been convicted of contravening the Electoral Act. Harare magistrate Gloria Takundwa said the State managed to prove its case against Biti beyond reasonable doubt.
She said Biti declared and announced that MDC-Alliance presidential candidate Advocate Nelson Chamisa had won the election before Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) made the official announcement on presidential election results.
“Biti presented his announcement as authentic and his actions had potential to undermine the official announcement by Zec,” she said. She added that the intention of the Act is to prevent such behaviour exhibited by Biti that is undermining the authority of Zec.
