Thousands of people have been out on the streets in Zimbabwe, celebrating the expected fall of President Robert Mugabe. He has led the country for the last 37 years.
Chaotic land reforms, drought and lack of financing have made it difficult for Zimbabwe's small-holder farmers to get ahead. Increased focus on funding irrigation schemes is hoping to change that.
Grappling with a severe economic crisis, Zimbabwe was hoping for increased cooperation with Germany and other western nations. Robert Mugabe was ousted a year ago. But money is not going to flow any time soon.
In his first speech since stepping down as president, Mugabe has said he "cannot" vote for his successor, Emmerson Mnangagwa, in Monday's landmark election. He spoke of having been "tormented" before his ouster.
Opposition supporters stand accused of "committing public violence" in the wake of contested elections claimed by incumbent President Emmerson Mnangagwa. His main rival says he will challenge the results in court.
