Mr Mutfwang polled 525,299 to defeat the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Nentawe Yilwatda, who scored 481,400 votes in the highly contested elections.

He ousted Yohanna Margif who was the Labour Party flagbearer to become the party’s candidate.

Mr Margif was expelled from the party over allegations of fraud.
