Many Zimbabwean shops and businesses are reportedly open for business despite opposition calls for a general strike to press for election results to be published.

According to BBC reports, armed police and soldiers are on patrol, even though there are no plans for street protests.

The police recently banned any public demonstrations and warned that those who breach the peace will be severely dealt with.

The opposition said Morgan Tsvangirai has defeated President Robert Mugabe.

The opposition is also claiming that the count is being rigged.

The election commission said it could not release the results of the presidential election, until a recount in some areas is completed this weekend.
