Nelson Chamisa is the new leader of Zimbabwe's opposition MDC-T. He says the time is up for the old generation.
Zimbabwe's new opposition leader Nelson Chamisa is 40 years old and he intends to run against President Mnangagwa on a youth ticket. DW's Privilege Musvanhiri asked him how he plans to lead the party.
The move comes amid ongoing uncertainty following the country's July 30 vote. Though initially peaceful, the election was quickly challenged. Vote count delays and a government crackdown have raised concerns.
Zimbabwe's electoral commission has declared Emmerson Mnangagwa president with 50.8 percent of the vote. Calling the results "fake," opposition candidate Nelson Chamisa has vowed to launch a legal challenge.
At least 21 people have died in and around the capital, Harare, and hundreds more have fallen ill. The ban comes ahead of a planned rally led by opposition leader Nelson Chamisa.
