Zimbabwe: Court Denies Election Appeal


HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) – Zimbabwe’s High Court rejected an appeal Monday for the immediate release of presidential election results, dashing hopes for an end to a paralyzing political crisis and prompting the opposition to call a nationwide strike.
Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai says he won the March 29 election outright and has accused President Robert Mugabe of holding back the results to try to maintain his 28-year grip in power. Independent tallies show Tsvangirai won, but did not receive enough votes to prevent a runoff.

Tsvangirai’s Movement for Democratic Change had hoped the court—though stacked with Mugabe loyalists—would force the election commission to release the results after a 16-day wait. The commission, which published results for parliamentary and local elections within several days of the election, said it can’t release the presidential results until it investigates electoral anomalies.

Mugabe out of power, would be like Christmas without Santa. Wait, the Left is trying that one.

Mugabe Makes First Public Appearance Since Zimbabwe’s Election, Expects to Win Runoff


No…Really? What led to this turnaround, shots to the back would be my guess.

Thursday made his first public appearance since Zimbabwe’s Saturday elections, Reuters reports.

Mugabe was shown on state television ZTV meeting with the head of the African Union election observer mission, the former Sierra Leonne president, Ahmad Tejan Kabbah, at his official State House residence in Harare, Reuters reports.

Reuters also reports that Zimbabwe’s ruling party expects a runoff election and is confident Mugabe will retain power, according to Deputy Information Minister Bright Matonga.

“From ZANU-PF’s perspective, we are very confident that we’ve got the numbers, when it comes to a re-run, we’re ready for that second round, and we are confident that President Robert Mugabe will win this time,” Matonga told Reuters.

Going, going…

Deal ‘close’ for Mugabe to leave. Well gosh, at least he’s a baseball fan, huh? Maybe it’s a golf cap.

President Mugabe has ruled Zimbabwe since independence in 1980

The outline of a deal has almost been reached for Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe to step down, opposition sources have told the BBC.

They say representatives of Mr Mugabe, military chiefs and the opposition have held meetings chaired by South Africa since Saturday’s elections.

The sources said Mr Mugabe would make the announcement on television, but his aides have denied the reports.

Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai said he was prepared to wait.

In his first public appearance since the election, Mr Tsvangirai did not confirm the reported deal.
