Mthwakazi activist Hloniphani Ncube has said Zimbabwe is faced with a situation where the country will be ruled by a President who had donated victory from the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission.

Emmerson Mnangagwa was declared a winner of the Presidential election by ZEC prompting the MDC Alliance Nelson Chamisa to launch an electoral challenge saying the elections were rigged.

"We are faced with a situation whereby we might be ruled by the president who was accorded the mandate by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission which manipulated the votes in his favour or a president elected by the people? It has been the norm," Ncube said.

"The question can Mnangagwa allow the rule by people after acquiring the position with a gun. Will democracy ever prevail in Zimbabwe? Is there a possibility that the court will serve justice fairly and decide to side with the truth at the expense of the boss who has the support of the military?"
