It's probable that Mugabe lost, but now he's resorting to his old dictatorial crap and accusations. My girlfriend's roommate was an election monitor there, and he's had to leave the country because Mugabe won't renew American visas. He was in South Africa, waiting for something to happen so he could go back for the run-off elections, but is now in Sudan visiting his girlfriend, who is working on some stuff in the South of that country.

He's got the coolest job. :evil:

Here's hoping that they can do SOMETHING to uphold the probable election victory against Mugabe and to rid Zimbabwe of his lack of leadership.

In the end, the fact that someone as important as Gordon Brown has said this - and on the eve of a state visit to the US, as well - is pretty remarkable. I think Mugabe's days are numbered.

In fact this kind of reminds me of the fall of Ferdinand Marcos, in a way.

I'm happy to see the opposition try to go through official channels (the country's Supreme Court, though Zanu-PF run) to legitimize themselves, and not to resort to violence. What happened in Kenya was pretty scary, and a repeat is, hopefully, being avoided. Lessons learned. :-)
