Zimbabwe’s first post-Mugabe elections will take place on July 30, the president has announced today according to the state-owned Herald newspaper reported.
The general elections referred to as “harmonised election” will allow voters to choose a president, members of the National Assembly and Councillors.
This is the first post-Mugabe polls after the long-serving leader was deposed in a 2017 de facto coup. President Mnangagwa who took over from Mugabe will face Nelson Chamisa of the main opposition Movement for Democratic Change – Tsvangirai (MDC-T).
