Mugabe Stole Election

July 25, 2008

When You’re The Only One Running You Can Do That

Have you ever heard of a one man election? Me neither. What has to be one of the greatest farces of an election in modern times, happened recently in Zimbabwe, when dictator Robert Mugabe forced his rival, Morgan Tsvangirai, out of a run off election, using violence.

The previous vote showed Morgan had won, but Mugabe was not happy with the results and resorted to intimidation, violence, murder and torture to regain power.

Many world leaders are vowing not to honor the results of the one man election, as Mugabe went too far. No one respects election fraud. It says to the world one is power hungry and unethical.

Morgan Tsvangirai is the rightful president.

Mugabe sworn in after one-man election

HARARE (Reuters) – Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe was sworn in on Sunday after being declared overwhelming winner of a one-man election which observers said was scarred by violence and intimidation.

Mugabe was the only candidate and went ahead with the vote despite a wave of international censure. The United States, which says it is preparing new sanctions, called on Sunday for strong international action.
