Zimbabwe sets extra day of voting in selected wards after delays

Reuters reports that Zimbabwe has extended voting in selected wards by a day after the late distribution of ballot papers delayed polling.
Voters in the southern African country waited for hours to vote on Wednesday, saying they were hungry for change from economic chaos, but analysts remain sceptical that the ruling ZANU-PF party would allow a credible election or any loosening of its stranglehold on power.
According to Zimbabwean law, voting is supposed to take place within one day.
