[LISTEN] Hiccups as Zimbabwe elections draws near

It's a countdown to the Zimbabwe elections after the 'coup' that toppled long-serving former president Robert Mugabe.

The elections have been scheduled for 30 July and the opposition is already crying foul.

A lot of things have not been attended to and a lot of tactness has characterised the elections preparedness.

Meanwhile, Zanu PF representative Nick Mangwaana says they don't expect MDC to pull out of the elections because they have been in talks for the past for years.

He further states that they believe they have resolved their issues with MDC.

The MDC is just one of the 27 political parties in these elections. We do not expect them to pull out.

Nick Mangwana, Zanu PF representative

We do not expect them to pull out but if they do so it will be their choice. there is no law in our country that compels a political party to participate in the elections.
