Tense atmosphere ahead of Zimbabwe elections

Reading Time: < 1 minute

There’s a tense atmosphere four days ahead of Zimbabwe‘s watershed poll.

With opposition parties continuing their campaigns, a recurring theme is how credible the election will be.

The Zimbabwean Electoral Commission is being accused of being the weak link following objections over voter registration, the voters roll and the design and publishing of the ballot paper.

Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) Alliance member Tendai Biti says he is adamant that the opposition cannot fail.

“There’s a clear legitimate credible inevitable victory for Nelson Chamisa and the MDC Alliance. And if that is stolen on July the 30th, we will not accept it I’m afraid to say,” adds Biti.

Zimbabweans will head to the polls next Monday.
