More (Non-)Surprises From Zimbabwe

Morgan Tsvangirai has been arrested.

Well this does not seem surprising in any way. Zanu-PF want to keep power, and they are doing everything they can to ensure that the MDC don't get their hands on it.

But I guess Mugabe managed to find the Z$290 343 566 175 (US$500) to use the "arrest" edict (yes, I've been playing Tropico).

But I wonder what the Zimbabwe government will claim? I guess it would have something to do with the West supporting Tsvangirai to "destabilise" Zimbabwe.

Either way it is just more evidence that supports the claim that Mugabe and Zanu-PF are trying to rig the election (as if that were a surprise...).

Hopefully more then enough people will vote for Tsvangirai for him to win the election. What's the bet that if that happens something will happen that allows Mugabe to rule anyway?
