Zimbabwe Senate elections

Voting in today's senate election kicked off to a slow start in the capital Harare with most polling stations registering very few voters an hour after polling began at 7am. A ZimOnline crew which visited polling stations in central Harare saw very few voters casting their votes in the controversial poll which has been boycotted by a faction of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party. Some polling stations were virtually deserted while polling officials could be seen dosing off, some in the shade outside polling stations. There were no voters at the Harare Polytechnic College, in Harare Central constituency while at Prince Edward school, also in Harare Central, only three people were seen casting their votes.

Another day, another farce in Zimbabwe.
