Eyes on Zimbabwe


While the wrangling between Zanu-PF and the opposition groups continues over who won the elections in Zimbabwe last weekend, some enterprising folks over at the anti-Mugabe website, Sokwanele, take the elections to a whole new level.

The above map charts how free and fair the election really was, mapping problems that may have had an effect on how much democracy there really is in the country. Some of the problems mapped include state propaganda, homicides, gerrymandering, vote buying and looting. The map also shows how articles listed in the SADC Principles and Guidelines Governing Democratic Elections have been breached by the Zimbabwean government.

To better understand what is being breached and how to read it, click on the above map.
