Just like if the DA won, South Africa would be? The same DA who are now moving a "corrupt" de Lille to represent them in the provincial legislature?
Anybody with half a brain knows the DA aren't the answer either, maybe a very slight improvement on the ANC, but in effect the same thing. Non-ANC supporters aren't inclined to having their heads in the sand - I hope.

I don't know what it is like now, but the Zimbabweans adopted the British education system (O levels and A levels) after Independence and were indeed more educated than South Africans. Essentially their high school education was more advanced than that of South Africa.

"many work harder" is not the same as "highest literacy rate". Of course they had a much superior education and skills training systems at some point as well as the highest literacy rate in sub-saharan Africa...fact (!).

Mugabe property 'vandalised' as Zimbabwe poll pressure heats up

Tensions were high in Zimbabwe on Monday after former president Robert Mugabe announced on Sunday that he would not be voting for the ruling Zanu-PF.

An ally claimed that state security assigned to Mugabe at his private residence was withdrawn after the press conference and that soldiers had vandalised his property.

At his home on Sunday‚ Mugabe announced that he would not cast a vote for the ruling Zanu-PF party.

Jealousy Mawarire‚ who coordinated the press conference and also speaks for the Mugabe-backed National Patriotic Front‚ a political party formed in March this year‚ said the security was withdrawn in response to the press conference.

Zimbabwe opposition leader says winning election 'resoundingly

Zimbabwe opposition leader Nelson Chamisa said on Tuesday he was "winning resoundingly" as votes were counted in the first election since long-time ruler Robert Mugabe was ousted from power. Chamisa, who has raised allegations of voter fraud during the campaign, said that his MDC party had results from 10 000 polling stations.

"Winning resoundingly... We've done exceedingly well," he said on Twitter after the landmark vote on Monday, adding "We are ready to form the next (government)." Counting had continued through the night after a strong turnout in Zimbabwe's first election without Mugabe, who was ousted by the military last year after 37 years in office.
