HARARE - Political tension is rising in Zimbabwe as the country prepares to hold its national elections in two weeks’ time — with opposition leader Nelson Chamisa yesterday accusing the election management body, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec), of being “biased” and “incompetent”.

These people l wonder whether they want to kill us with lies and hunger as they fear in venturing into the unknown. Civil servants retire at 60 please its time to retire and herd cattle in rural homes

It is too late for Diasporans to vote but it is not too late for us to impact the 2018 elections. We can choose ED who will spend the next three years trying to convince the world that he did not rig the 2018 elections before any meaningful support or investments can come in or we can choose Chamisa who can engage multilateral financial institutions from day one. We can choose to continue sending money back home or we can choose an empowering regime where our folks can help themselves, achieve for themselves, produce for themselves. We can choose to be keep quiet or we can engage our folks and tell them what we think, what we hope for and the Zimbabwe we want or we can be busy with our daily routines, we can choose to be participants or to be observers as the future of our country evolves, unfolds. ZIMBABWEANS in the diaspora...this is our chance! Call home today!

Chamisa has no capacity to lead;ED seems the only option at the moment,may b come next election we will b sure the so called new dispensation has nothing really for ordinary people;we are sure America ,China& Britain will try Mnangagwa as well-he appears a new man.we won't hv n problems with foreign support I am sure

Gudo, what's new about ED that you feel he couldn't do while in office under RM. This is a man who participated in running down this country's economy through corruption, looting, theft and murder. Our relatives in the Diaspora today fled into refuge because of this fellow and his cdes in crime. Now he mks an abt turn, and beguiles men like u to think he needs more time. More time to destroy our lives, our families, our children. Men like u need to have their brains examined.
