Thousands of anti-government demonstrators marched through Harare on Thursday, in the first rally since a deadly crackdown on an election protest in August.

Many protester showed their support for the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party leader Nelson Chamisa.

Addressing the crowd, Chamisa said: "The people have voted, the vote must count, the voice must count. You voted and that vote must be respected.

"We are not agreed on the president. There is a crisis of legitimacy. Mr Mnangagwa, yes, was confirmed by the constitutional court but we still have to resolve from a legitimacy point of view, the contestation around who was voted by the people".
