“No evidence”: Court dismisses Renamo’s application to annul election results

The opposition Renamo party in Mozambique has failed to substantiate the allegations of the widespread fraud in the recent general elections.

This week, the country’s top court dismissed the organisation’s application to have the results annulled citing there was not any sufficient evidence in the case.

“The applicant has not provided sufficient evidence to support its claim,” the verdict read.

The legal proceeding outcome threatens to sparkle a new wave of violence across Mozambique, just three months after the Renamo and the ruling Frelimo sealed peace.

The opposition has been contesting the results since the moment the polls opened on October 15, stating there were cases of mass fraud and attacks on the stations.

“We will not accept that a small group of people alter the will of the Mozambican people,” Renamo leader Ossufo Momade stated on Wednesday.
