PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe's ruling Zanu PF party has won the election for presidency of the Zimbabwean upper house of parliament, the Senate, a parliamentary official said on Monday.

Clerk of parliament Austin Zvoma said Zanu PF candidate Edna Madzongwe received 58 votes against 28 votes cast for Gibson Sibanda, who was supported by both factions of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC).

Earlier, the MDC faction led by Morgan Tsvangirai snatched the position of Speaker of Parliament in a stunning development that marks a major power shift in local politics.
