Walking slowly but unaided into the polling station, Robert Mugabe was not going to let his fall from power stop him from seeking a leading role in Zimbabwe’s historic elections. Now aged 94, he arrived at the primary school in the Highfields district of Harare surrounded by bodyguards and accompanied by his wife Grace, who is 41 years his junior. Wearing a red tie, red pocket handkerchief and dark suit, Mugabe had his finger marked with a pen to show he had voted and then spend several minutes in the cardboard polling booth selecting his choices on the three ballot papers.
