Election Rejection in Zimbabwe

The Zimbabwe Electoral Support Network, the Parallel Vote Tabulation and other independent observers confirm that the overwhelming majority of voters in the Zimbabwe General Elections rejected 84 year-old Robert Mugabe and his ZANU-PF government. 

Despite massive irregularities and intimidation by the ZANU-PF government and its state run Electoral Commission and numerous allegations of vote rigging, the overwhelming majority of voters in the main cities of Harare and Bulawayo voted for the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) and it’s leader Morgan Tsvangirai. 

Mugabe’s 28-year rule has resulted in widespread hunger, mass unemployment, 100,000% inflation and over 5 million Zimbabweans voting-with-their-feet by fleeing the state sponsored terrorism and national suicide of Mugabe’s ZANU-PF government. 

During an election rally, Mugabe threatened that any vote for the opposition would be wasted, because it will “never be allowed to rule this country!”  He threatened to put down any Kenya-style protests: “That will never happen here, never ever.  We have enough security forces!”

The ZRP police warned the MDC that to celebrate their electoral victory would be seen as attempting a coup and would be put down violently.

Zimbabwe now has the lowest life expectancy and the highest inflation rate in the world.
