Leader of the Namibian Government Observation Team, ambassador Tuliameni Kalomoh says he is satisfied with the conduct of the Zimbabwean Electoral Commission (ZEC).
Kalomoh says both the voting and the counting was conducted in a transparent manner and the final results should be available sooner than expected.
Zimbabwean Electoral laws prescribe for a five day period for the results to be released.
However, the commission has given assurance that this could be done by Thursday.
If any of the 23 candidates are unable to secure over 50% of the vote a presidential runoff will be held a month later on 8 September.
The runoff will see only the two candidates who amassed the most votes from the first round of voting progress to a one-on-one voting battle for the majority.
Currently, president Emmerson Mnangagwa and MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa, are leading the race for the country's next president.
The Namibian delegation is part of 12 966 election observers currently in the country.
