Harare, Aug 10, 2018 (AFP) -Zimbabwe's presidential inauguration has been postponed, the justice minister said on Friday, after the opposition MDC party lodged a court bid to overturn the results that gave a narrow victory for Emmerson Mnangagwa.

"The inauguration is no longer going ahead (on Sunday) as planned," Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi told AFP. "All proceedings are suspended pending the determination of the Constitutional Court."
