Zimbabweans will head to the polls on July 30. The election is set to be a two-horse race - between Emmerson Mnangagwa, the successor of long-time President Robert Mugabe, and Nelson Chamisa, the new head of the MDC party.
In the early 2000s their farms were forcefully seized. Over 18 years later, Zimbabwe's white farmers are still seeking compensation. Now they are suing South Africa for helping Robert Mugabe suppress their case.
Zimbabwe's electoral commission has declared Emmerson Mnangagwa president with 50.8 percent of the vote. Calling the results "fake," opposition candidate Nelson Chamisa has vowed to launch a legal challenge.
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.
Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa has denied reports of a rift between himself and his deputy, a former army general who led the coup that toppled longtime ruler Robert Mugabe.
