ZIMBABWE UPDATE: “Zimbabwe’s opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai said today he’s the clear winner over Robert Mugabe in the first round of a presidential election and there’s no need for a run-off.” Lawhawk comments on the desperation: “Mugabe has destroyed the country, and is still holding on to power for as long as he can. The runoff election is yet another way to try and game the results in his favor, despite losing the election. Meanwhile, opposition lawyers were being blocked from going to court to force the publication of the election results.” The chance of ending this nonviolently seems to be shrinking because of this behavior. If this ends up with Mugabe and his henchmen swinging from trees, it’ll serve him right.
