Zimbabwe Votes in First Election Since Mugabe's Ouster

Voters in Zimbabwe are choosing a new president Monday in the first election in 38 years without longtime leader Robert Mugabe on the ballot as the head of the ZANU-PF party.

Mugabe, 94, resigned in November under pressure from the military. His longtime deputy, 75-year-old Emmerson Mnangagwa, took over and is one of the leading candidates in the election along with the new head of the largest opposition party, 40-year-old Nelson Chamisa.

Ahead of the voting, Mugabe lashed out Sunday at ZANU-PF, the party he founded, saying it did not have his support. "I cannot vote for those who have tormented me," said Mugabe.
