MAPUTO (Reuters) – Mozambique’s incumbent President Filipe Nyusi has won 73% of the vote in a presidential election, the National Election Commission (CNE) said, securing a landslide victory.

Ossufo Momade, the candidate for the main opposition party and former guerrilla movement Renamo, trailed behind with 21.88% of the vote, the CNE Chairman Abdul Carimo said at a news conference on Sunday.
