Mugabe confident of victory

Daily News: "We don't rig elections. I cannot sleep with my conscience if I have rigged,' the 84-year-old said as he cast his ballot in Harare.

Large queues had gathered outside the polling stations in the capital by the time they opened, but apathy reigned in other parts of the country.

There was no immediate figure for the turnout after polls closed at 7pm, although about 5,9 million people were entitled to vote for the president as well as members of the 210 seat parliament and local councils."
