Pretoria - The ANC wished Zimbabwe well on Tuesday ahead of its elections.

"These elections are a critical milestone in the implementation of the global political agreement of 2008 that sought to resolve the impasse following the last elections that were marred by violence," African National Congress spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said in a statement.

"The ANC therefore wishes the people of Zimbabwe successful and peaceful elections...."

    All the Southern African leaders are a disappointment, its either they are not educated or they have no clue on how to govern.

    Is even the press so plain stupid Who in his mind think that Mugabe will go into the election without knowing he will win? Please! The opposition should pull out now and gain something - In fact Mugabe and his stupid wife and his kiddies are almost finished with counting the votes and I wont be surprised if Dali Tambo is helping them to count

    I wish the Zimbabwens a free and a peaceful election. I think it's about time for Zimbabwe to host a free and fair election in their political history.

    More evidence of our leadership vacuum.

  • Henri James Christie - 2013-07-30 17:59

    Hasn't been so up until now, why would the elections suddenly be free and fair this time round??

  • Wane Thek - 2013-07-30 19:01

    Agreed, should read,"Zim elections a millstone, says ANC"

  • Jon Low - 2013-07-31 06:58

    All these "critical milestones" have kept flashing by for 30 years without the insane whackjob behind the wheel paying the slightest notice of any of them. And all the time the bozos in the ANC cheer him on, rushing headlong to his death.

    By conspiring with Mugabe to aid the stealing of the popular vote by Zimbabweans, I wonder what Zuma(South Africa, SADC and the AU wish to prove? What do they gain when we the ordinary Zimbabweans will desert our country en mass flooding SA and neighbouring countries? Pathetic
