A RECORD 75% of registered voters took part in Zimbabwe's tightly-contested elections yesterday, where top presidential contenders - Emmerson Mnangagwa (Zanu PF) and Nelson Chamisa (MDC Alliance) - are reportedly in a neck-to-neck race, with the first batch of results expected this morning.
At one polling station in the capital Harare, officials counted large piles of votes using gas lanterns and candles late into the night.
Voters turned out in huge numbers to cast their ballots in the first election since Robert Mugabe was ousted as president. "I was a fool to have him next to me", he said of Mnangagwa, whom he accused of conniving with the military chief to pull off a "coup". I have to see a better Zimbabwe for my kids. He voted and told reporters he took Mugabe's criticism in stride, saying: "He is a citizen. I am not afraid".
"I can't vote for Zanu-PF, I can't vote for the people who have brought me into this state", Mugabe said during a press conference in the garden of his home in Harare on Sunday.
Mugabe, wearing a dark suit and red tie, was greeted with cheers at the polling station but did not answer journalists' questions about who he voted for.
"I have no doubt that by end of day today we should be very clear as to an emphatic voice for change".
Inside polling stations, voters were given three ballot papers: one for their presidential pick, another for member of parliament and a third for local councillor.
Zanu-PF deputy legal secretary and former deputy justice minister Fortune Chasi told VOA that, "Mr. Mnangagwa announced on Saturday that he had finished his campaign when he addressed a rally at the National Sports Stadium in Harare".
"Winning resoundingly... We now have results from the majority of the over 10 000 polling stations".
