I'm reading that the ''irregularity'' Elmar Bok (EU observer) witnessed was Zanu PF transporting voters in to areas they were not registered to vote in.

"In some cases, it (the voting) works very smoothly," commented Elmar Brok, the head of the EU observer team. "But in others, we see that it's totally disorganised and that people become angry, that people leave."

But worse still, Mr Brok was alarmed to note that the ruling party delivered 100 people by bus to vote in a district where they didn't live. The observer team is now going to check whether this was a single example or part of a pattern "which might have influence on the result of the elections".

This is the site, but I cannot confirm its veracity.

Yup, in rural constituencies, apparently Zanu PF stacked up unrealistically large margins. The guy said on eNCA that in one constituency, 35000 votes for ZANU PF, 2000 for MDC.

I think the opposition has scored a spectacular own goal here.

I'd also protest after the election was once again stolen for like the 4th time in a row.

A work colleague of mine, who is Zim said this morning, people were going to die because if these elections. I guess he was not wrong. Sad reality. :(

Just a matter of how far they go, does the Zimbos have the balls to go full revolutionary.

I think they might this time. The general sentiment is worse than ever during this period for Zim.

Zimbabwe election: Zanu-PF has most seats, incomplete results show
......
However, Douglas Mwonzora, a top MDC Alliance official, told the BBC's Andrew Harding that the endorsement on Sunday of their candidate by Mr Mugabe had cost the party votes. He also alleged that the ruling party had bribed voters in rural areas

You can do a lot of things when you are aggrieved, having the wisdom to identify what will help your cause and what will harm it is the difference.

You mean MDC Zimbabweans? A revolution can only happen if the people of Zimbabwe are unhappy, it looks to me like it is the opposition so far, unless the belief is that no one supports Zanu PF?

Yes them. It only takes a small amount of people to start something. 80% of people are sheep they don't matter.
