AFRIC observers at the 2018 Zimbabwean general elections

On the day of elections myself and two other colleagues, Sphiwe Dlamini (South Africa) and Joao Nhampossa (Mozambique) were deployed in Mashonaland East and we visited eleven polling stations across three regions; Marondera, Seke and Wedza. The mood was similarly peaceful everywhere we went. “We don’t want war, we want progress” said a voter in Marondera. That was the echoed desire from everyone we spoke to.

Corresponding elections

On 30 July 2018, Zimbabwe held general elections to elect the president and members of both houses of parliament. For the first time since 2002, Western institutions sent several missions to monitor the elections in Zimbabwe following the coup d’état in 2017.
