Zimbabwe votes in first post-Mugabe poll, opposition cries foul

Zimbabweans voted on Monday in the first election since former president Robert Mugabe was ousted in a de facto coup, with allegations of voter suppression raising fears of a disputed result.

Nelson Chamisa, the main challenger to President Emmerson Mnangagwa, a long-time Mugabe ally, gave no evidence for his claim that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) was impeding voting in urban areas where he enjoys strong support.

The people's will being negated & undetermined due to these deliberate & unnecessary delays, Chamisa tweeted.

The ZEC was not immediately available to comment. It has denied Chamisa's previous allegations of bias.
