HARARE RESIDENTS HAIL FIRST VIOLENCE FREE ELECTION

Many of the city’s residents are still sceptical that this means the opposition party will win Monday’s election.

Nearby, Zanu-PF, the party that has ruled Zimbabwe since independence in 1980 also held a rally. One thing is certain: for the first time since independence — the end of white-minority rule — Robert Mugabe will not be the president after an election.

We leave it to readers to estimate the size of the MDC Alliance rally at Freedom Square using the top photo on this article.

The party’s leader, Nelson Chamisa, addressed a crowd wearing colourful red T-shirts and berets. Some stood on top of cars and trucks. Others climbed trees to get a better view. [...]

PROTEAS START ODI WITH A WIN: THANKS TO BOWLERS

Some consolation for a disappointing tour they claimed four wickets each to help bowl out Sri Lanka for 193, a total the visitors passed in just 31 overs to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

South Africa’s chase depended on an 86-run third-wicket stand between Quinton de Kock and skipper Faf du Plessis, who both hit 47.

Off spinner Akila Dananjaya struck at crucial moments to get three wickets but Jean-Paul Duminy ensured a swift chase with his 32-ball unbeaten 53.

ERITREAN–ETHIOPIAN PEACE A WATERSHED MOMENT

The Eritrean–Ethiopian War, one of the many conflicts in the region, was started in May of 1998. Various international groups have claimed that at least 100 000 people have been killed during this 20-year conflict – which just never looked like it would end.

The war itself only actually lasted just over two years, following an Ethiopian military victory. A treaty had actually been drawn up in 2000, but both parties failed to come together on that.

Under the leadership of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, Ethiopia has finally agreed to get this peace ball rolling. Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki has played his part.

Peace was declared by both sides earlier this week. [...]
