ZIMBABWE: Chamisa disavows post-poll violence

The Zimbabwean opposition leader has distanced himself from post-election violence that led to the deaths of six people earlier this year.

Nelson Chamisa told an inquiry into the killings that his Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) had not sanctioned the demonstration on 1 August, the day after the vote.

He said several party officials were detained during the protests, adding that the MDC was more often a victim of violence, not an instigator of it.
