Zimbabweans vote in first Mugabe-free election

Zimbabweans are going to the polls today in what is described as a histroric elections without the country's founding President Robert Mugabe, who was ousted last year after close to four decades in powers.

The runners of this historic presidential race are 75 years old incumbent Emmerson Mnangagwa of the ruling Zanu-PF party, and his 40 years old rival  opposition leader Nelson Chamsia.

This is the very first free and fair elections in Zimbabwe, that is taking place without the interferance of the former leader Mugabe.

Hundreds of international observers have been deployed to ensure the vote goes smoothly, but the opposition has repeatedly alleged irregularities in the voter roll.

They have also expressed concern over the security of ballot papers and voter intimidation in mainly rural areas.
