Zimbabwe's opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) leader Nelson Chamisa only won in three out of Zimbabwe's ten provinces, namely Harare, Bulawayo and Matebeleland North.

Effectively, and so to speak, Chamisa lost in all of Mashonaland's provinces, winning there only in metropolitan Harare.

Notably, Chamisa did not win Masvingo, his home province.

In Matabeleland provinces, Chamisa won metropolitan Bulawayo and Matabeleland North; while Matabeleland South voted in step with the rest of the country.

This is the worst national performance by an MDC/CCC opposition presidential candidate since the formation of the MDC in 1999.

Chamisa's poor national performance should give voters in Matabeleland provinces food for thought after they woke up this morning to the hard realisation that the region's vote is out of step with the voting of the rest of the country.
