Zimbabweans Brace For Ballot Paper With 118 Political Parties

A staggering 118 political parties have registered to contest in the looming elections in Zimbabwe - up from 35 that existed prior to 2017. Some opposition parties claim many of these are a creation of the ruling Zanu-PF party to crowd the ballot and confuse the electorate. President Emmerson Mnangagwa hasn't set the election date yet but has pledged that the elections will be free, fair and credible.
