Mugabe Wins Seventh Victory

Hail to the Chief? Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe was officially declared president again on Saturday with 61 percent of the vote from Wednesday's election—amid claims of electoral fraud. This officially stands as Mugabe's seventh victory, although his opponent has promised legal action. No major outside groups were invited to monitor the election, leading Secretary of State John Kerry, who cited "electoral irregularities," to say that Mugabe's election does not "represent a credible expression of the will of the Zimbabwean people." Nevertheless, the regional power of South Africa has declared its support for Mugabe.
