President Robert Mugabe’s ZANU-PF party has claimed a landslide victory in Zimbabwe’s elections, but its rival, Prime Minster Morgan Tsvangirai’s Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), said there had been “monumental fraud”.
Yesterday’s poll had been peaceful across the country, but the early claims from the competing parties heralded an acrimonious dispute over the outcome and raised fears of a repeat of violence that marred a 2008 election.
Releasing unofficial results early in Zimbabwe is illegal, and police had said yesterday that they would arrest anybody who made premature claims about the result. Election authorities were due to announce results on Monday.
But a senior source in Mugabe’s ZANU-PF party, who asked not to be named, said the outcome was already clear.
We’ve taken this election. We’ve buried the MDC. We never had any doubt that we were going to win,” the source told Reuters by phone on Thursday.
