Mugabe won: Annan

Politics
FORMER United Nations secretary-general Kofi Annan says President Robert Mugabe and Zanu PF could have won the July 31 elections “with or without games” as the world warms up to the veteran ruler after over a decade in isolation.

Annan, one of Mugabe’s harshest critics, told Britain’s Guardian newspaper, that Zanu PF was well organised and the party had experience.

“We’ve seen the economic and political debate and the difficulties in and around Zimbabwe,” he said.

“The last elections have been declared ‘free’ and ‘fair’; I don’t think they used the word ‘credible’.

“I think the results have been accepted and he (Mugabe) has a good party organisation, they’ve been around for a long time, and probably could have won with or without games.”
