Zanu-PF future unclear after Mugabe wife's utterances
Zanu-PF future unclear after Mugabe wife's utterances

The future of Zimbabwe's ruling party, Zanu-PF remains unclear following First Lady Grace Mugabe's entrance into mainstream politics and her vitriolic attacks against Vice President Joice Mujuru.

Cape Town – The European Union has reportedly set the implementation of electoral reforms as a key requisite for Zimbabwe's full re-engagement with the bloc.

According to the News Day, EU Ambassador to Zimbabwe Aldo Dell'Ariccia said the bloc was still concerned about the manner in which last year's elections were held, insisting they did not conform to best democratic practices.

Dell'Ariccia said Mugabe's government had the task of restoring democracy in the country, insisting electoral reforms would guard against disputed elections in the future.

Mugabe, 90, romped to victory with a 62% majority of the national vote in the 31 July elections, with the opposition, however, claiming that the election was a "farce".
