Voting is currently underway in Africa’s Super Sunday as five countries and one semi-autonomous archipelago holding polls over a single day.
Sunday marks a rare occasion in the calendar of African politics, with a presidential in Congo, two runoffs- in Benin and Niger- and a long awaited repeat poll in Zanzabir.
The day promises to be exciting as Cape Verde holds parliamentary elections while the Senegalese take part in a constitutional referendum.
In Congo Brazzaville, President Denis Sassou-Nguesso is seeking a controversial third term that could extend his 32 years in power. He is one of the continent’s five longest-serving leaders, and is widely viewed as the quintessential African strongman.
