So it begins

This always looked like happening, once Mugabe realised that he had been so heavily defeated in the Presidential election that manipulation and ballot stuffing would be inadequate to present it as an outright victory. People have been writing as if, simply because Mugabe lost the election, this was the end of the Mugabe era. Well, maybe so but he's not going quietly.
Zimbabwe's opposition says its activists have been attacked in a campaign of "massive violence" around the country since recent elections.
"Militias are being rearmed, Zanu-PF supporters are being rearmed," said MDC Secretary General Tendai Biti.
This is going to get very ugly.
