I was positively impressed by the organisation if the presidential election. I was incredibly touched by the pride I saw in people’s eyes standing in the queues, very calm and very proud.
I also see self-confidence. I saw the polling officials and they seemed very meticulous trying to do everything according to the book. It took some time at times but I was astounded how committed they were, how thorough they were, very transparent. This election was a symbolic gesture that Zimbabwe has now come to international standards in terms of holding democratic processes.
