Harare - Violence erupted on Wednesday outside the Zimbabwe Election Commission (ZEC) at the International Conference Centre.
Burning tyres, rubber bullets and tear gas, as well as a water cannon were brought to the outskirts of the hotel complex earlier on Wednesday as thousands of MDC Democratic Alliance supporters protested outside the gates to the Rainbow Towers Hotel.
Since late last night, Harare’s riot police, water cannons and troop carriers have been moving around the city centre.
MDC supporters arrived at about 11 am chanting, shrieking in protest and burning tyres.
