ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia – The African Union (AU) observes with concern the post-election evolution in Zimbabwe and calls on all interested parties to avoid violent confrontation, reported the community bloc today.

A statement issued by the AU also urged security agencies to exercise the same moderation and ensure tranquility and citizen stability.

The statement, which reproduces the words of former Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Dessalegn, who serves as head of the observation mission of the entity sent to the southern African nation to evaluate the elections, encouraged the actors involved to work together to build Zimbabwe and make the country move forwards.

The elections were held on Monday with great participation of the population, more than 75 percent, in a climate of peace and transparency, highlighted the AU in a preliminary report.
