Zim’s Court Upholds Mugabe Election Victory

via [FFZE] Zim’s Highest Court Upholds Mugabe Election Victory – Zimbabwe Election: Latest News & Voting Information by Don Gwara, Nicollete Zulu and George Mpofu for FFZE

Zimbabwe’s Constitutional Court has declared President Robert Mugabe the winner of the July 31 elections and dismissed opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai’s court petition for a re-run with costs.

The Court said the elections were free, fair and credible and called for the arrest of Mr Tsvangirai’s lawyers for describing the judiciary as an extension of ZANU-PF.

The Court went ahead with the case even after Mr Tsvangirai withdrew his petition on Friday after he was denied crucial materials needed to back up vote rigging charges against Mr Mugabe.

    Your heading should read ‘MUGABE’S Highest Kangaroo Court Upholds Mugabe’s FRAUDULENT Election Victory’ NOT ‘Zim’s Highest Court Upholds Mugabe Election Victory’. No one expected anything to the contrary making this ‘no news at all’.

    The irony of 1..”The Court said the elections were free, fair and credible” 2..”ordered arrest for describing the judiciary as an extension of ZANU-PF.” The first statement is comprehensive proof of the second; case closed.
