So, I doubt that there will be much interest in this but I thought I'd risk it anyway...Link to Article on Zimbabwean Elections
Zimbabweans have flocked to polling stations in the southern African country's presidential election...
Thousands of voters braved the early morning chill across country to queue hours before poll booths opened, just after 7am local time (05:00 GMT) on Wednesday.
Personally, I feel that the results (depending on what they might be) could have quite an impact on the African continent...
To summarize the situation:
President Robert Mugabe is a man that has taken a very hard-line to the redistribution of land from one skin colour to another. Through some fairly draconian methods he has managed to partially accomplish this goal but effectively crashed Zimbabwe's economy in the process. Despite this initial sting, the country has seen a large leap in growth over the last three years, giving many hope that the economy is finally stabilizing. His main opponent, Morgan Tsvangirai, is the leader of the MDC, a party which is trying to quell government's power and halt the redistribution of land.
I don't really like to summarize since this is a fairly complex affair but that's about the gist of it.
