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.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa hasn't set the election date yet but has pledged that the elections will be free, fair and credible.
