Robert Mugabe re-elected Zimbabwe's president: election commission
HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has won re-election for a further five-year term, the Zimbabwe Election Commission said on Saturday.
"Mugabe, Robert Gabriel, of ZANU-PF party is therefore duly elected president of the Republic of Zimbabwe with effect of today," commission head Rita Makarau told a news conference, giving the results of the July 31 vote which Mugabe's main challenger has rejected as a fraud.
