HARARE – Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai has vowed to end President Robert Mugabe's 33 year reign saying the massive turnout was a sign that Zimbabweans want to complete the stalled change of 2008.
The MDC leader, who is making a third crack at the presidency, told journalists after casting his vote along with his wife Elizabeth at Mt Pleasant High School around 10 am, that he was touched by the winding queues.
“Today is a historic day for all of us to complete the delayed run-off of 2008. We wish everyone to complete the change,” said Tsvangirai.
As voters waved to the former trade unionist, he became emotional reflecting on the journey he has walked since entering the country’s political space in 1999.
“This is an emotional moment, when you see all these people coming to vote, it is touching,” he said.
Tsvangirai was accompanied by his children and some top MDC officials.
