President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Twitter says authorities are "urgently investigating" the events as journalists awaited opposition leader Nelson Chamisa, who has rejected the results of Monday's election.

Mnangagwa was declared the winner with just over 50% of the vote.

The president says that "we won the election freely and fairly, and have nothing to hide or fear."
