BREAKING: Grace Mugabe's diplomatic immunity 'unconstitutional' · 30 July 2018
The decision to grant former Zimbabwean first lady Grace Mugabe diplomatic immunity is "inconsistent with the constitution", the South Gauteng High Court found on Monday. Judge Bashier Vally set aside the decision by former international relations and cooperation minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane. Vally said Nkoana-Mashabane's decision had been inconsistent with provisions in the constitution. The ministry has also been ordered to pay the costs of the application‚ brought by the Democratic Alliance (DA). The wife of former president Robert Mugabe was accused of assaulting South African model Gabriella Engels at a Johannesburg hotel‚ where Mugabe's two sons were staying. Engels sustained deep cuts to her forehead and the back of her head and registered a case with the police the next day. But the state granted Mugabe immunity‚ saying it was imperative to maintain good intergovernmental relations within the region‚ and in particular‚ between South Africa and Zimbabwe. The DA and AfriForum approached the courts to set the decision aside soon after

Herald calls Chamisa a proxy for Mugabe · 30 July 2018
Zimbabwe's state-run Herald newspaper is harshly criticising main opposition leader Nelson Chamisa on election day, calling him a proxy for former leader Robert Mugabe and rejecting his claims to represent change. The front-page commentary follows Sunday's remarks by the 94-year-old Mugabe that he would not vote for his former deputy President Emmerson Mnangagwa and that Chamisa is the only viable candidate. "Now this is the man who tries a comeback by proxy," The Herald says. Addressing the 40-year-old Chamisa, it continues: "You willingly become his cat's paw while masquerading as an independent man representing a new generation." - AP

Voting going at a snail's pace in Bulawayo · 30 July 2018
A politician in the Zimbabwean opposition stronghold of Bulawayo says there are numerous reports of "voting going at a snail's pace." David Coltart, a supporter of opposition leader Nelson Chamisa, says he hopes election observers will pay special attention to the pace of voting "as it is a means of suppressing the urban vote." Coltart says on Twitter that Zimbabwe's electoral commission deliberately slowed voting in urban areas in the 2002 election to undermine the opposition, which traditionally has strong support in major cities. Past elections have been marred by irregularities. But Zimbabwe's electoral commission says this election - the first without longtime leader Robert Mugabe - will be free and fair. - AP

Mnangagwa casts his vote · 30 July 2018
Mnangagwa wore a scarf with the country's national colors as he arrived at a primary school converted into a polling station, and chatted briefly with election workers after casting his ballot. He told reporters that he is committed to a Zimbabwe in which people have the "freedom to express their views, negative or positive." He called the vote peaceful. And he took the criticism of him by former leader Robert Mugabe on Sunday in stride, saying that "He is a citizen ... He can engage me anytime."









AP is reporting that Piercing whistles and cheers greeted Chamisa as he voteed in the country's historic election. Crowds swarmed the 40-year-old lawyer and pastor at a polling station just outside Harare. Chamisa is challenging the 75-year-old President Emmerson Mnangagwa in Zimbabwe's first election without Robert Mugabe on the ballot. The contest could bring international legitimacy and investment or signal more stagnation if the vote is seriously flawed.

Past elections were marred by violence, intimidation and irregularities, but Mnangagwa, a former enforcer for Mugabe who says he now represents change, has promised that this election will be free and fair. The presence of Western election monitors for the first time in years is an indicator of a freer political environment, though concerns have been raised about state media bias toward the ruling party as well as a lack of transparency with the printing of ballot papers. Inside polling stations on Monday, voters were given three ballot papers: one for their presidential pick, another for member of parliament and a third for local councilor. Polling officers helped voters put each ballot paper in the right box. - AP

Former Liberian president and a leader of one of the international observer missions, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, says: "This is a critical moment in Zimbabwe's democratic journey. The elections today provide an opportunity to break with the past," "The lines and voter enthusiasm we are seeing this morning must be matched by an accurate count and their choice must be honored." Sirleaf said this at a polling station in a school in Harare. - AP

South Africa's DA leader Mmusi Maimane has tweeted to wish the opposition Movement for Democratic Change success in the elections "Wishing the MDC success in elections. Democracy requires that we hold parties accountable and as my late friend Morgan would say, Zim must see post liberation era politics. Zanu mustn’t trick people into a belief that a change of leader is a change of party. AFRICA needs change."
