From all the indications, Morgan Tsvangirai and Simba Makoni, the independent presidential candidate backed by Arthur Mutambara's faction of the MDC are going to end the notoriety and monstrosity of President Robert Mugabe after 28 years. They are confident that there will be no sixth term for Mugabe.

Thousands of Zimbabweans in Chegutu, Chitungwiza and other parts of the country are already jubilating on the streets.
