Zimbabwe elections,are they rigged?

Recommended Posts

I know Geoff has closed the politics forum but seeing as this is on the TV and in the news then its current affairs and as such is allowed I think?

Anyway looks like his zanu pf party are going to win the election despite the fact it has been condemed by human rights groups.

Mugabe is using race to win the election and citing Tony Blair as the real enemy ,makes you think dont it?

Definately rigged Roy. Didnt the Mugabe controlled state court rule that thousands of people were ineligible to vote. Mugabes policy of intimidation has secured his election victory

We'll never know - as the polls are clearly rigged. The BBC is banned, and the media is state controlled.

 

Mugabe's castigation of Tony Blair is but a distraction from the real problems facing Zimbabwe. I deplore any kind of election which uses race as an issue. Wouldn't you agree with that sentiment royjames?

[MOD NOTE] This is about the elections in Zimbabwe not about the politics of individual users - please try to keep on topic and not digress into a general political debate. Thankyou

From the little I have read about Mugabe and his little regime I would think that if they aren't rigged, people are probably too scared to vote for anybody else anyway.

 

Funny how Bush doesn't seem to care about this dictator though...

Sorry Mod - didn't mean to stray off topic.

Isn't his policy to only allow food to be given out to his own party voters.

 

That fact alone must make it rigged. He will certainly get rid of any opposition.

Yes I find the policy of giving food to his supporters in preference over the rest to be awful,the man clearly has no morals and as for Bush I agree with you he dont seem too botherd does he?

Does the UN not have any resolutions against the Mugabe goverment? I f it does it dont seem to bother him much.
