Saturday, 03 August 2013 - 8:21



Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's party has won a huge majority in parliament in this week's elections.


With most seats declared, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission said Zanu-PF had won 137 seats in the 210-seat chamber, just short of two-thirds.


Results in the presidential race have yet to be announced.


Mugabe's main rival, Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, has already dismissed the election as "a sham"
