Simple Arithmetic Taking Over 48 Hours
The polls closed on Saturday at 6 PM, now some 48 hours later there is still no official announcement of results. I find this quite surprising and as the government should be now used to counting large sums especially after fueling a world record inflation of 400000%. Now there are a number of theories going around
1) The top army brass visited Mugabe early Sunday morning and told him point blank he had lost, that he should accept defeat they told him point blank that there were no guarantees that the army will protect Mugabe as allegiance had switched, Mugabe then went on to say that OK lets wait for the ZEC to finish up tallying........ and obviously we are still waiting.
2) The army will stage a coup and Mugabe will leave for Malaysia where he has extensive business interests, while the army rules for six months, they will then call for elections in September. They (the army) will act very professionally and agree that Mugabe wanted to rig the election
3) Mugabe will win by 52.6% the presidential lection after rigging it for 24 hours. Zanu PF will also get a majority in the parliament and the senate, they will doctor the results so that they will obtain 110 seats to MDC's 98
48 hours after polling closed, official results for only 38 constituencies have been released. Email the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone them on +263 4 781 903 to complain about the unacceptable delay in announcing the results.
