Zimbabwe Presidential Poll Results

BBC has the results of the Zimbabwe Elections – officially.

The long-awaited results of Zimbabwe’s presidential poll have been announced, with the opposition’s Morgan Tsvangirai winning 47.9%, forcing a second round.

Election officials say Mr Tsvangirai beat President Robert Mugabe’s 43.2%, but neither candidate passed the 50% threshold for an outright win.

Now the world gets to witness Mugabe at his most desperate – expect widespread intimidation.

Oops, forgot to pack enough fake ballots

Well, it looks like the Zimbabwe recount survived attempts to monkey it.

Ms Frazer’s comments came a day after the electoral commission announced Mr Mugabe’s Zanu-PF had failed to regain its parliamentary majority after a partial recount of votes.

The results were unchanged in 18 of 23 seats where recounts had taken place, it said.

Good.

Not so good is that Zimbabwe is falling off the radar. This story wasn’t even top African story on the BBC and I couldn’t see anything about Zimbabwe on the front page.

Let’s hope the good news continues though. It’s time this tin pot dictator was shown the door with a swift kick up the arse.
