Zimbabweans in poll stations


The infamous Mugabe era is over. Today, the Zimbabweans are in the poll stations to elect their future leader. It is the first time the country has witnessed an election post the Mugabe era, which was forcibly brought to an end by the effort of the country’s military and some members of Robert Mugabe’s party.

Unsurprisingly, Emmerson Mnangagwa, the political leader of Zanu-PF who played a vital role in the ousting of the Mugabe led government and is the present Supremo of the country, is the frontrunner of the election as per the preliminary assumptions released by the observers, experts and media persons who are in the country in connection with the election work.

Notably, more than half of the total voters of this African country are below fifty years old. Actually, the youngsters are the deciding factors. The person, on whom the youngsters put their trust, will definitely win the election.

Movement for Democratic Change alliance leader Nelson Chamisa is the close contender for the ruling leader in the election. The presence of the large number of youth voters gives confidence to the forty year old leader.

So far, no serious violence or irregularities have been reported. But, the opposition parties have claimed that the possibilities for the occurrence of irregularities, malpractices and intimidation are very high. Anyway, the International representatives are on the mode of high alert.

Who will win the ‘Mugabe-free Zimbabwe’?
