M&G Hangout: Has Zimbabwe had a free and fair election?

Zimbabweans went to the polls this week, five years after a violently contested election that ushered in a power-sharing deal between it's two largest parties.

Zanu-PF leader Robert Mugabe, who has been in power for over three decades, has ignored pleas for him to retire and is seeking a seventh term as president. 

Mugabe has said he will step down if outvoted but that, should he win, he will not continue with a government of national unity together with opposition party the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC).

The election process has been both peaceful and efficient so far but, with allegations of vote rigging and intimidation, many will be left wondering whether the country will end up with another suspected stolen election.
