Zimbabweans march to demand free elections

Zimbabwe’s main opposition party, the Movement for Democratic Change, has marched to the country’s elections body, demanding reforms to ensure that this month’s general elections will be free and fair.

Opposition leader Nelson Chamisa presented a petition to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, as thousands of protesters denounced the management of the elections.

The opposition wants a say in how things are run.

It wants to monitor the printing, storage and transportation of the ballot papers, plus access to the complete voters roll for auditing.
