Zimbabwean opposition leader Nelson Chamisa on Thursday ratcheted up pressure over the country's election count, saying he had won the presidential vote and that the result was being rigged.

"We have won this election," he told reporters.

"What they have been trying to do of late is to play around... that is rigging, that is manipulation, trying to bastardise the result, and that we will not allow."
