Zimbabwe’s former finance minister and opposition leader Tendai Biti has been charged with provoking post-election violence after President Emmerson Mnangagwa’ was elected. Biti's People’s Democratic Party had formed an election alliance with Nelson Chamisa’s Movement for Democratic Change. Biti was also charged with falsely and unlawfully announcing results of the July 30 election. If found guilty, Biti could face up to 10 years in jail, a cash fine or both. Biti told reporters, “It’s been an ordeal, but we survive. We live to fight another day." Six people were killed last week in a widely condemned army crackdown on protests over the declaration of victory by Mnangagwa’s ruling ZANU-PF party.
