Excerpt:Â The vise-like grip of Robert Mugabe on the country and people of Zimbabwe is as strong as ever, and he continues flexing his muscle to maintain control over the country he's nearly destroyed.
Zimbabwe's election was March 29, and the final presidential results still haven't been announced. They probably won't be, until the desired results are attained â€“ meaning Mugabe is re-elected.
That's what happens in a dictatorship when the election results are not what the top guy had in mind. Mugabe, a trained and avowed Marxist, is that guy, and he's not happy. He's been president since 1980 and doesn't plan to give it up.
