Challenges Being Faced By Political Parties In Zimbabwe

ABSTRACT

The support base of the opposition political parties in Zimbabwe has not been reaching out to the rural populations, which has taken a drastic toll on their political victories. The rural populations have either been uninformed or misinformed on issues concerning the political situation and developments in the country and the power party has taken full advantage of that situation. It should be noted that, rural areas have up to 70% of our population, and in these areas there is rampant electoral fraud, violence and intimidations exercised by the ruling party which has presented a challenge for opposition political parties. According to a report by solidarity peace trust (2008) indicates that ZANU-PF has a majority support in the important rural constituencies of Mashonaland West, Mashonaland East, Mashonaland Central, Masvingo and Midlands which gives it a head start on the voting role. According to Chigora (2011) et al comment that, there is dire need for the opposition political parties to identify with an ideology that links them with the rural electorate where the majority of the people reside.
