The only person to vote for is Chamisa, not Mujuru or Khupe and never Mnangagwa: Robert Mugabe declares


Former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe says he will not vote for those who tormented him, implying that he will not be voting for Zanu-PF, the party he led for almost 40 years, which ousted him last year.

Mugabe was giving a public address at his Blue Roof Residence in Harare on the eve of the Zimbabwean elections tomorrow.

"I must say very clearly, I cannot vote for those who have tormented me. I can't. I'll make my choice among the other 22 [presidential candidates]."

Mugabe was succeeded by his longtime ally, Emmerson Mnangagwa, following a military coup last year and insists that there must be an upholding of the country's democratic constitution.

Mugabe says he wishes whoever wins well.

While responding to questions, Mugabe made it clear that he is not going to vote for neither Joice Mujuru, his former Deputy President nor Thokozani Khupe, a former Deputy Prime Minister in the inclusive government because these two ladies are not common. "They don't have much to offer," Mugabe said.

Instead, Mugabe said the only person left to vote for is Chamisa whom he said has done very well so far judging by his rallies.

On Saturday, MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa said he has Mugabe's support and that Mugabe will hand over official power to him.

At the same time, Chamisa is also addressing the media at the Meikles Hotel, also in Harare.

Chamisa's lawyer, Thabani Mpofu has used the briefing to iron out concerns surrounding tomorrow's polls, outlining logistical procedures such as the use of voting equipment, and the expected voter etiquette at voting stations.

"We urge Zimbabweans, once the polling officers put the results on the notice boards, which they are obliged to do by law, to immediately take photos of the results and distribute them," Mpofu says.
