Surprise in Zimbabwe

The 2008 presidential election in Zimbabwe is over and President Robert Mugabe has lost the popular vote. While I think this is good news for the country of Zimbabwe, this result is a surprise to me since Mugabe has been the Zimbabwean president since their independence from England was official in 1980.

President Mugabe has been a controversial leader in southern Africa for decades, compared to Hitler by some. He is strongly anti-white to the detriment of the country as a whole and has been considered the reason Zimbabwe has gone from a food producer for much of the continent of Africa to dependance on the WFO for grain and staples for most Zimbabweans.

BBC News article about the Zimbabwe election can be read here.
