Zimbabwe's opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai says he is pulling out of Friday's presidential run-off, handing victory to President Robert Mugabe.

Mr Tsvangirai said there was no point running when elections would not be free and fair and "the outcome is determined by... Mugabe himself".

He called on the global community to step in to protect Zimbabweans.

The decision came after opposition supporters heading to a rally in the capital Harare came under attack.

The MDC says at least 70 supporters have been killed in recent months.

Mugabe needs to be removed from power. Now nothing not even political elections can remove him.

Politics thread much? Don't expect The Pit to be very up to date with every day African corruption.
There's only one thing we can do to thwart the plot of these albino shape-shifting lizard BITCHES!
