In Zimbabwe, MDC is claiming victory in a number of constituencies based on early unofficial results with their Secretary General Tendai Biti stating that they have taken 66% of the votes in Harare and 88% in Mashonaland West with more results to be released that they hope are in their favour. The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission said it would start announcing official results late Sunday but the final results are not expected for a few days. It is still a bit too early for MDC to be celebrating a victory because anything can happen.

    The people have shown which direction they want to go. Unfortunately not everyone has got the peoples welfare at heart.
    Could not believe how many people are looking forward to go back home…..

    I am sure most people want things to go in that direction but life is not fair and things won’t always go the way they should go. It is part of life.
