- Zimbabweans residing in South Africa are deeply upset by the results of the elections in their home country
- They are willing to go to Zimbabwe to join the ongoing protests against the electoral commission
- Chaos and violence followed the results of the election
Zimbabweans who are living in South Africa are very disappointed with the Zimbabwean election results.
The first elections since Robert Mugabe was removed from power should have been the start of a new beginning for Zimbabwe but resulted in chaos
SA Zimbabweans are so upset with how the election has gone, that they are willing to travel to Zimbabwe to join in the protests against the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission.
The results are showing that Zanu-PF won the first elections since Robert Mugabe was ousted in 2017, as reported on by Briefly.co.za. ZANU-PF claimed not less than 109 seats against 41 for the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC).
This came as a surprise after MDC leader Nelson Chamisa was so confident about winning. Briefly.co.za reported that Chamisa shared his optimism on social media, claiming to be winning resoundingly.
Zimbabweans who hoped they could return home from South Africa are having their dreams crushed by Zanu-PF's victory in the elections. They feel that protesting is their only hope.
