Monday’s election is looking closer than the ruling Zanu-PF party would like. Could it be the first liberation movement in the region voted out of power?
After the music and the singing and the long weeks of campaigning, after the shouts of “power to the people” and “Viva”, President Emmerson Mnangagwa made a final appeal to the people of Zimbabwe on Saturday.
“We are reaching the end of a long road and are at the beginning of a new era,” Mnangagwa told the crowd in the national stadium on the outskirts of Harare, the capital. “What is wanted now is one push to have the most thunderous victory in the history of this country.”
