Opposition leader Nelson Chamisa from the POV film President (2021)

Mon., Aug. 8 at 10 p.m. on WKAR-HD 23.1 & STREAMING | A new leader takes on the corrupt ruling party in Zimbabwe's 2018 presidential election.

Zimbabwe is at a crossroads. The new leader of the opposition party, MDC, Nelson Chamisa, is challenging the old guard, ZANU-PF, represented by the acting president, Emmerson Mnangagwa.

The 2018 Zimbabwean general election serves as the ultimate test for both the ruling party and for the opposition. How will they interpret democracy in a post-Mugabe era – in discourse and in practice?
