Never mind the ballots
Zimbabwe's main opposition party has accused the government of printing millions of surplus ballot papers for the presidential and legislative polls.
The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) says leaked documents show nine million papers have been ordered for the country's 5.9 million voters.
Vote fraud? In Zimbabwe? Not a chance. It's just that with inflation running around 66,000 percent, you get in the habit of printing really large quantities of paper documents.
