Harare, Aug 4: Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe was re-elected for another fiver-year term in office, officials declared. Mugabe, 89, who has led Zimbabwe since 1980, won the election for the seventh term.

Mugabe won a landslide victory by winning 61% of the vote against Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's 34%. "I thought this election was going to resolve this political crisis. It has not. It has failed. It has plunged the country back to where it was," Tsvangirai said
 
Meanwhile, world nations expressed concern about the allegations of serious flaws in the election. "The United States does not believe that the results announced today represent a credible expression of the will of the Zimbabwean people," US Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement.
