Nations rally to blast discredited Zimbabwe election
Barry Artiste, Now Public Contributor
Ya know, Mugabe said only God could remove him from office, now perhaps there are some in this world, who feel they speak for God and are biding their time to show Mugabe the way..............permanently.
Zimbabwe opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai took refuge in the Dutch embassy in Harare Monday as the international community condemned President Robert Mugabe for a campaign of violence that has discredited elections scheduled for Friday.
A day after Mr. Tsvangirai announced his withdrawal from the presidential runoff election because of violence from ruling party militias, Zimbabwean security forces raided the offices of his Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) and arrested up to 60 people.
Fearing for his safety, Mr. Tsvangirai fled to the Dutch embassy, while saying he is still prepared to negotiate an end to Zimbabwe's political deadlock with the ruling ZANU-PF party.
In an interview with CNN television, Mr. Tsvangirai said the international community should declare Friday's election "null and void" and organize a new vote under the supervision of international observers from either the African Union or the United Nations.
