Many fear that the delay in Zimbabwe's presidential election results getting released is a sign that Mugabe is working out how he can rig it.  But Centre Right flag up a New York Times article which says differently:

"Advisers to President Robert G. Mugabe of Zimbabwe are in talks with the opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, amid signs that Mr. Mugabe may be preparing to resign, a Western diplomatic source and a prominent Zimbabwe political analyst said Tuesday. The negotiations about a possible transfer of power away from Mr. Mugabe come after he apparently concluded that a runoff election would be demeaning, a diplomat said."

Mugabe to step down?  I'll believe it when I see it...
