Updated 13 March 2002, 08.49
Votes are counted in the Zimbabwe elections
President Robert Mugabe has won the presidential election in Zimbabwe, winning more than 50% of the votes cast and another six years in charge of the country.

Mugabe took 1.6m votes, 500,000 ahead of his opposition challenger Morgan Tsvangirai.

There are now worries that Mugabe's Zanu PF party will try and destroy the opposition party, the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC).

Lots of MDC supporters and members have been arrested during the election, and there were lots more places to vote for Zanu PF voters than for MDC voters.

Election was fatally flawed

Zimbabwe
During the election some people from Europe were in Zimbabwe to watch how the voting was run. The Norwegian observers said the election was severely flawed and failed to meet international standards.

Supporters of Mugabe say that people who say bad things about the election are wrong and are telling lies.
