HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe opposition leader Nelson Chamisa said on Friday that he would pursue all legal and constitutional means of challenging this week’s presidential election, which he lost to President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Mnangagwa polled 2.46 million votes against 2.15 million for Chamisa, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) announced in the early hours of Friday morning.
