Electoral reforms demo update: Charismatic and youthful Nelson Chamisa paints Harare RED (WATCH VIDEO)


Supporters of Zimbabwe’s largest opposition Movement for Democratic Change Alliance today assembled in the capital, Harare, for a peace march.

The demonstrators marched on to the offices of the electoral commission to hand in a list of demands for free and fair elections ahead of the 30 July polls.

Some were holding placards referring to alleged voter fraud in Zimbabwe’s previous general election in 2013, urging extra scrutiny of the polling stations and the voters roll this time around.

One man was seen holding a sign reading “no to military junta,” presumably in reference to the army’s intervention last year which forced Robert Mugabe to resign as president and cleared the way for his successor Emmerson Mnangagwa.

As leader of the ruling Zanu-PF party and acting president of Zimbabwe, Mr Mnangagwa is seeking victory in July’s elections to cement his democratic mandate to rule.
