First results in Zimbabwe recount

The results of the first recounts in Zimbabwe’s parliamentary elections are in, with the ruling and opposition parties retaining one seat each.

The ruling Zanu-PF party held its seat in Goromonzi West, while the opposition MDC held on to Zaka West, the Zimbabwe Election Commission said. The MDC says the recounts are an attempt to rig the election and overturn its parliamentary majority.

Meanwhile, the UK says it will press for an arms embargo on Zimbabwe. Prime Minister Gordon Brown said he would propose the international embargo to prevent a shipment of weapons from reaching the country.

And how many years this recount going to last? Mugabe, Africa’s caricature Hitler forever!!!
