Zanu-PF celebrates “successful general elections” in Zimbabwe.

The spokesperson for the ruling party ZANU-PF stated on Sunday (August 27) that the re-election of President Emmerson Mnangagwa “shows that Zimbabweans are democratic” and that “a new confidence is being instilled” in the country. In the wake of yet another contentious election in the southern African nation of Zimbabwe, President Emmerson Mnangagwa was declared the winner of a second and last five-year term late on Saturday (August 26). The results of the election were published far earlier than anticipated.

Mnangagwa extended his gratitude to the people of Zimbabwe on Sunday for being calm during the entirety of the election process. Chris Mutsvangwa, a spokesperson for the ZANU-PF party, said that the party had “no quarrel” with the voting system and urged the opposition party to have the same approach. We applaud the performance of the principal advocate for the opposition, Nelson Chamisa. “He did not make it, but it was a good show, and it shows that Zimbabweans are democratic,” he said to the press after the election.

According to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, Mnangagwa received 52.6% of the vote, ensuring his re-election as president of Zimbabwe for a second and final five-year term. According to the electoral commission, Chamisa, 45, received 44% of the vote this time. In the election five years ago, Chamisa also lost to Mnangagwa in a very tight and controversial poll. 69% of people who were registered to vote actually cast a ballot.

The two-horse race was essentially a repeat of the most recent election for president. Mnangagwa received 50.8% of the vote in 2018, while Chamisa received 44.03%. The increased voter margin we had this time compared to the previous one is good evidence that the president’s actions are beginning to instill new confidence in Zimbabweans, according to Christopher Mutsvangwa.

Mnangagwa earned slightly more than 2.3 million votes out of a total of 4.4 million that were voted. According to the electoral commission, Chamisa was awarded 1.9 million votes. After Mnangagwa was declared the winner of the election, the leader of the opposition, Nelson Chamisa, made accusations of “blatant and gigantic fraud” in the poll.

The spokesperson for ZANU-PF also made a comment on the international criticism coming from the European Union and the United States. He said that their engagement in African problems “harks back to post-colonial psychosis, post-imperial angst.”

The election of Mnangagwa ensured that the ZANU-PF party would continue to hold the position of governmental leadership it has held for the whole 43 years of Zimbabwe’s history, ever since the nation was renamed after achieving independence from the rule of a white minority in 1980. Mnangagwa and the long-serving despot Robert Mugabe are the only two people who have held the position of president in Zimbabwe throughout this time.
