Zimbabwe crisis

The Zimbabwean electoral commission officials have started to recount in 21 constituencies where they claim to have said of anomalies. Previously the opposition has filed a petition to order the release of results immediately. however the high court Judge Tendai Uchena dismissed the petition.

The opposition claims that the court judges and ZEC officials are the supporters of mugabe and they bring decisions that are favorable to him.

The ship An Yue Jiang from china containing cargoes of weapons and ammunitions to be sent to Zimbabwe arrived in Durban port of south Africa. While the government cleared for the cargo to be sent to Zimbabwe, the laborers and others working in the port decided not to offload these cargoes and filed a case in the high court which banned offloading. The ship left to unknown destination.
