Robert Mugabe, the well-known Zimbabwe dictatorist, was last night celebrating, what his supporters were calling, a famous landslide victory over the opposition MDC Party led by Morgan Tsvangirai.
Mr Tsvangirai had been hiding out in the Dutch Embassy in Harare for the last few days, and it may have been this, and the lack of effective canvassing for votes, that has cost him victory.
The opposition party led the polls in May, and, indeed, won the first round of elections, but Dr Mugabe called for a second round of voting "just to be sure", and his Zanu PF Party has now come out on top.
Mr Mugabe's supporters were jubilant this morning, and randomly burnt down huts in celebration of his great victory campaign, which was rumoured to have secured 100% of all votes cast.
Not everyone voted for Zanu PF, however. Harare resident Henry Umbongo didn't.
"I didn't vote for Mugabe, I voted for the MDC",
he said as his head wa sliced in two from behind like a watermelon.
