Hey Thabo!

Read this from AFP:

But experts in South Africa said the run-off election with Mugabe the sole candidate may already be in violation of the country’s laws.

“If we follow the Zimbabwe Electoral Act, legally, Morgan Tsvangirai is the winner, the regime having failed to organise a rerun within 21 days after the election result was released,” said Ross Herbert of the South African Institute of International Affairs.

“This Friday’s rerun is clearly outside the law and so, its outcome will be illegitimate,” the researcher at the Johannesburg-based institute told AFP.

Of course, Bob breaking his own country’s laws is probably not a problem for you, since you’ve just renewed Jackie Selebi’s contract as Commissioner of Police.

Both characters must be innocent until proven guilty.

Times are tough in Zim

Following on from yesterday’s post, I thought I’d have a look at the balanced reporting of Zimbabwe’s Herald. I was a little surprised to find that they have a web-presence, considering the state of things in that country at the moment, but I suppose Mugabe makes certain that his mouth-piece is as widely heard as possible.

However, even the Herald doesn’t pretend that anyone is having any fun in Zimbabwe.
