Zimbabwe's constitutional court is set to decide the real results of the country's recent polls.

Who was the real winner of Zimbabwe’s recent election?

That is the matter set to be decided by the country’s constitutional court today.

The opposition MDC Alliance is taking no chances having hired South African legal eagles Jeremy Gauntlett, Thembeka Ngcukaitobi and Dali Mpofu.

On Monday, it remained unclear if they would appear with reports saying the justice minister had denied them work permits.

But today, the case will be broadcast live on the ZBC.

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa, Sunday Times Journalist Ray Ndlovu says the indication that they are getting from the police minister in Zimbabwe is that he is still processing the lawyers' applications.

He has requested additional information from the MDC Alliance regarding getting details of their representative so that he could process their paperwork and be able to give them the exemption certificates.

Ndlovu adds that the entire court process will focus on the presidential results.

About two weeks ago, Nelson Chamisa brought an application to the constitutional court challenging the outcome of those presidential results.
