The second-round run-off in Zimbabwe‘s disputed presidential election will be held on 27 June, the government says.
Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai won the first round, but not by enough to avoid a run-off. President Robert Mugabe said the poll was “disastrous”. Mr. Tsvangirai says he will contest the second round, after originally threatening to boycott it.
He has accused Mr. Mugabe’s party of vote-rigging and a campaign of violence against opposition activists. His Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) says ruling party militias and soldiers have beaten and tortured MDC supporters in an attempt to either keep them away from the polls or intimidate them into voting for the ruling party.
Just over a month till the end! Mugabe there is a cell with your name!
