Zimbabwe election: First vote without Mugabe

Voters in Zimbabwe are going to the polls in the country’s first election without the involvement of long-time leader Robert Mugabe. The country’s founding president, Mugabe was ousted last year after almost four decades in power. The main contenders in the presidential vote are incumbent Emmerson Mnangagwa, of the ruling Zanu-PF party and opposition leader Nelson Chamisa. Parliamentary and local elections are also taking place. Polls give Mnangagwa, thought to be 75, a narrow lead over his 40-year-old rival, who leads the MDC Alliance.
