NZ election observer in Zimbabwe: Tim Barnett

From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 2 August 2018

Three people have been killed in Zimbabwe in post election violence, as oppostion supporters alledge election rigging by the governing Zanu-PF. Riot police have been on the streets of the capital Harare as frustration mounts over delays in the release of election results. It's the first election since Zanu PF's Robert Mugabe was ousted last year, after 30 years in power as president. New Zealander and former Labour MP Tim Barnett has been in Zimbabwe as an independent observer for the elections, as a member of the Commonwealth Observer Group.
