Mail & Guardian Online: "Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe's deafening silence after weekend elections has raised increasing speculation about the fate of a strongman who has never previously found himself lost for words.

After a bruising campaign for the presidency in which he faced the toughest fight for his political survival, Mugabe declared on the polling day he was ready to romp to another victory to win a sixth uninterrupted term."
