Zimbabwe’s ruling Zanu PF party has taken the lead in crucial elections held on Monday amid concerns by the opposition of alleged manipulation of the vote.

The National Patriotic Front, a faction of the ruling party led by Ambrose Mutinhiri, won the Kwekwe Central parliamentary seat.

ZEC chairperson, Justice Priscilla Chigumba, told journalists in Harare that the results would be announced as soon as they are collated and verified by relevant officials.
