Nelson Chamisa candidate taking on a fight no other party have won in five decades, insists he is tackling Zimbabwe’s election with both hands.
Appealing to the young and unemployed, he is challenging a regime that has run Zimbabwe for most of his life.
In the first election since Robert Mugabe was forced from power, many Zimbabweans feel they are still yet to see the progress they were promised following his demise.
But after declaring himself as the “clean hands” candidate to his jubilant supporters, Mr Chamisa said his adamance that his party, the MDC Alliance, will change Zimbabwe for the better.
“Nothing short of rigging and cheating is going to stop us from claiming the victory,” he said.
“In fact even if they cheat, they can’t even cheat us out of victory.”
Vice President of Zimbabwe Constantino Chiwenga, a former general who led last year’s coup against Mugabe, is at the forefront of the Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU–PF) campaign
ZANU-PF have a known history of violence but claim this time around, things will be different.
“These elections are going to be different from any election which has been held in the country,” Mr Chiwenga told ITV News.
“They will be free, they will be fair, they will be transparent. Non-violent and credible.”
In Zimbabwe’s crippled economy, with currency in immensely short supply and unemployment standing at a staggering 90%, the young vote are certainly counting on change.
