Zim­babwe’s Pres­i­dent Mnan­gagwa has called pres­i­den­tial and par­lia­men­tary elec­tions for 30 July, and vowed that they will be free and fair. Mnan­gagwa (pic­tured), 75, who took power in Novem­ber, hopes a con­vinc­ing vic­tory will bol­ster his le­git­i­macy as he works to sta­bilise the econ­omy and re­build re­la­tions with the West. His main ri­val is Nel­son Chamisa, the leader of the Move­ment for Demo­cratic Change, who has re-en­er­gised his party, gain­ing sup­port in the rul­ing Zanu-pf’s ru­ral strongholds.
