The day before Zimbabwe's first election since former president Robert Mugabe was ousted in a de facto coup, the 94-year-old said he hoped his former allies in the "military government" would be voted out of power.

Mugabe, whose 37-year-rule came to an end when he was forced to resign in November, told reporters at his mansion in Harare on Sunday that President Emmerson Mnangagwa's government was unconstitutional and ruled by the gun.

Monday's election will see 75-year-old Mnangagwa , a long-time Mugabe ally, face 40-year-old Nelson Chamisa, a lawyer, and pastor who is vying to become Zimbabwe's youngest head of state.
