Mugabe Re-Elected in Landslide
OTB projects, with 0% of the precincts reporting, that Robert Mugabe will be re-elected as president of Zimbabwe by a wide margin. Exit polls reveal that the prime factors in motivating voters are a fear of being murdered and the lack of opposition candidates on the ballot.
Security was also a prime concern: “I’ve got no option but to go and vote so that I can be safe,” explained a young woman selling tomatoes.
Angus Shaw of the AP reports unusually heavy turnout.
