All through today one country more than any other has been in my thoughts and prayers, Zimbabwe.
Over the past six years I have come to know many refugees from Zimbabwe. Many have become close friends.
Many a long hour has now passed since the election and my fears are growing that the only real reason for a delay in announcing the result of the vote is because that vote is being rigged.
Robert Mugabe has done Zimbabwe unspeakable harm and I hope that this fantastic but impoverished country can now be rid of him. I really do hope so.
