United Nations, United States / United States -
UN leader Ban Ki-moon on Friday called on Zimbabwe rivals President Robert Mugabe and Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai to send “clear messages of calm” to supporters as election tensions mount.
Ban calls for disputes over Wednesday's vote to be handled “transparently and fairly,” said his spokesman Martin Nesirky.
The 89-year-old Mugabe's ruling party has claimed a landslide win to extend his 33-year-old rule. Tsvangirai has said there was “huge fraud” in the vote.
