(London Daily Mail) Foreign Secretary William Hague told of his ‘grave concerns’ over how the Zimbabwean election was conducted after it was confirmed Robert Mugabe has won another five-year presidential term.

Zimbabwe election officials said this afternoon that Mugabe, 89, won the presidential election with 61 per cent of the vote, compared to 33 per cent for challenger Morgan Tsvangirai.

The result infuriated Tsvangirai, who claimed the election had been stolen by Mugabe’s Zanu-PF and claimed it was a ‘huge farce’ and ‘null and void’.

He said the result had plunged the country into a constitutional crisis, saying his MDC party would no longer deal with Zanu-PF.
