Former opposition chief Lazarus Chakwera has won the presidential election in Malawi against incumbent Peter Mutharika. He won with 58,57% of the votes in Tuesday's election. Chakwera said his win was a "victory for democracy and justice".

"There's no cause for fear because I will be your president and my policy for inclusivity means we are building a new Malawi for all of us," Chakwera told BBC.
