Zimbabwe opposition alleges inauguration prep

Zimbabwe's main opposition is expressing concern over reports that preparations have begun for the inauguration of President Emmerson Mnangagwa even before the constitutional court has ruled on its challenge to the election results.

A spokesperson has spoken to reporters an hour before the court is set to announce its ruling.

The spokesperson says inauguration preparations cannot begin before the court ruling and "that is a problem."

If the court upholds Mnangagwa's narrow election victory the inauguration would be held within 48 hours.

An Associated Press reporter sees no preparations at the national stadium in the capital, Harare.
