Zimbabweans are hoping for change after 37 years under the rule of Mugabe.
All eyes are on Zimbabwe, as the country heads to the poll to vote in a historic election: the first since the ousting of Robert Mugabe who ruled the country or 37 years.
The race is between incumbent President and Mugabe successor, Emmerson Mnangagwa and 40 year-old lawyer and pastor Nelson Chaimsa, who hopes to become the country's youngest leader in history. There are 21 other candidates on the ballot as well.
The youth will play a crucial role in determining the outcome of this election, as many first-time voters under the age of 35 will cast ballots today.
