University Of London Professor Predicts Mnangagwa Election Victory
Author and Professor at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, Stephen Chan has predicted that President Emmerson Mnangagwa is poised to win the forthcoming July 30 elections.
Chan, a lecturer on African Political Thought said that Mnangagwa, who is running as Zanu Pf’s Presidential candidate was likely to continue with the legacy of his predecessor former president Robert Mugabe of winning elections.
Speaking to SOAS Blog, Chan said:
“This one is going to be historic simply because of his absence. But I think that his party and his successor President Mnangagwa will probably win.
The opposition has not had a very good beginning to its campaign. It’s former leader died without anointing a successor; there have been all kinds of squabbles as to who that successor should be and their late start means that they may not be able to make up the headroom that Mnangagwa has been able to achieve.
So without needing to cheat, I think the ruling party is likely to win this particular election.”
The forthcoming harmonised elections slated for July 30 will see a record 23 candidates contesting for the presidency.
