Results for the South African (SA) elections are expected to be out this Saturday.

South Africans cast their votes yesterday (Wednesday 8 May) to elect their president.

South Africa’s Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Mr Mphakama Mbete said the electoral process went well across the provinces.

He, however, revealed that there were minor incidents, synonymous with any election, where some people alleged that polling stations were opened late.

“The electoral process went on very well and there was no violence during the process. However, there are minor incidents where some people alleged delays on opening of polling stations but generally the elections went on well,” said Ambassador Mbete.

Zimbabwe Ambassador to South Africa, Alice Mageza, who was the guest of honour at the South African National Day, commended the relations that continue to grow between Zimbabwe and South Africas as shown during the recent Cyclone Idai disaster.

“Zimbabwe and South Africa continue to enjoy cordial relations and on behalf of the Zimbabwean government, we appreciate the interventions that South Africa gave to Zimbabwe during the recent Cyclone Idai, among other interventions,” said Ambassador Mageza.

The South African government said it values unity among Africans and called on all Africans to disregard the artificial borders that separate the countries.

The opening of the Beitbridge One-stop Border Post is among some of the beneficial deals that South Africa and Zimbabwe are currently seized with.

The third session of the Zimbabwe-South Africa Bi-National Commission was held in Harare in March, where 45 agreements covering various sectors of their economies, ranging from mining, trade, railways to air transport, were signed.
