Zimbabwe social media awash with false election results

Zimbabwe Electoral Commission chairperson Priscilla Chigumba

CLAIM: Social media is flooding the market with what are purportedly results of the 2018 elections from thousands of polling stations around Zimbabwe.

How many of these are the correct results?

CONCLUSION: Many are fake and misleading.

The official results have to be tallied and verified by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) even where these have been posted outside polling stations.

ZEC says it will start announcing results from 1500 (CAT).
