Zimbabwe doesn't need foreign poll experts in 2018: Mzembi

Foreign Affairs Minister Walter Mzembi said that Zimbabwe does not need foreign poll experts to ensure that next year’s elections are endorsed by the international community.

He was responding to Harare Central MP Mr Murisi Zwizwai (MDC-T) who asked him what he will do to ensure that the country’s elections will not be disputed by the international community. Mzembi said that Zimbabwe was capable of holding its own elections without foreign poll experts. Said Mzembi:

Let us not look forward to these organisations for guidance. Zimbabwe has the best expertise in conducting credible elections. This is evidenced by how our elections have been held in the past. The ruling Government upon being elected in 2013, the first body to congratulate us was the United Nations through the then secretary general Mr Ban Ki Moon and it happened during the UNWTO conference and all other countries in attendance congratulated Zimbabwe, we hope going forward to maintain that momentum.
