Video Shows Vote-Rigging in Zimbabwe

Kudos to the prison guard, Shepherd Yuda, who risked his life to obtain this footage. Yuda intended to document the conditions of political prisoners at the jail, but ended up with a front row seat to Mugabe's "election". He has since fled the country.

[NOTE: For their protection, people directly interviewed in this video have had their faces blurred, and their voices dubbed over by one of the British announcers.]

Meanwhile, in a move that is sure to mean death for a good number involved, Britain is demanding that 11,000 refugees from the country return home. Many Zimbabweans, understandably, are opting to live illegally in the UK rather than return to the violence.
