Zimbabweans are going to the polls in the country's first election without the involvement of long-time leader Robert Mugabe.
5 million Zimbabwe have registered to vote at 10 thousand polling stations across the nation.
EWN reporter Clement Manyathela who is in Zimbabwe says most Zimbabweans were very excited and enthusiastic when going to the polls on Monday morning.
