It’s tricks galore in Zimbabwe’s beleaguered polls.

It is obvious that Mugabe lost the election, but the vain pride preventing him from conceding to Morgan Tsvangirai means all known forms of common sense should be sacrificed, even if the outcome is violent.

Shockingly, Tsvangirai is yet to learn the rudiments of the game.

He has taken his plea for a declaration of the results into the same den — the Zimbabwean High Court — supervised by Mugabe.

Could it be that the Movement for Democratic Change knows that Mugabe is baiting them to demonstrate in order to prepare a country over which he has no moral sway, for martial law?
