Zimbabwe's election ruling delayed by an hour

Zimbabwe's state media say the constitutional court ruling on the disputed presidential election has been delayed by an hour.

The ruling is now expected at 15:00.

Security is tight in the capital, Harare, as the court will determine whether President Emmerson Mnangagwa's narrow victory is valid. The opposition claims vote-rigging and seeks either a fresh election or a declaration that its candidate, Nelson Chamisa, won.
