Is democracy going to come to Zimbabwe?


Is this evil dictator in Malaysia, if so he should be kicked out immediately.

Mugabe may have escaped to Malaysia, some news reports, including those from the BBC say.

A senior Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) official Tendai Biti says party leader Morgan Tsvangirai has won 60% of the vote, against 30% for Robert Mugabe.

Official results however still show both sides each have 26 parliamentary seats so far. Biti however is reported as saying that the results are being rigged and he went on to state that the electoral commission was planning to announce that Mr Mugabe had won 52% of the vote - just enough to avoid a run-off. The MDC would not accept these results, he said.

Zimbabwe’s Deputy Information Minister Bright Matonga denied the polls would be rigged and said the president would accept defeat.

"We don't expect to lose, but it is going to be a very tight contest and if he (Mugabe) loses, you have to accept that," he reportedly told the BBC.

Mr Matonga also denied rumours that Robert Mugabe had escaped to Malaysia or was planning to impose a state of emergency.

Riot police have been patrolling the streets of the Zimbabwean capital city, Harare, and other urban areas and the local residents have been told to stay indoors.
