Zimbabweans have gone to the polls to vote in their first election without Robert Mugabe on the ballot.



...


About 5.5 million people are registered to vote in the southern African nation, which is anxious for change after economic and political paralysis during the nearly four-decade rule of 94-year-old Mr Mugabe who was ousted in a military coup.
Thousands of election monitors have fanned out across the country to observe a process that the opposition says is biased against them, despite assurances from the electoral commission.
The two main contenders are 75-year-old president  Emmerson Mnangagwe,  a former deputy president who took over after Mr Mugabe stepped down last year, and 40-year-old Nelson Chamisa, a lawyer and pastor who became head of the main  opposition party a few months ago.
