Mugabe ‘heads for farm seizure defeat’

ZIMBABWE president Robert Mugabe is reported to be heading for defeat in
the referendum on a new constitution, reports The Times.

The new constitution would give Mr Mugabe new powers including the right
to seize white-owned farms without compensation.

Election officials in Zimbabwe say bad weather has disrupted the counting
of votes from the vote on Sunday (13 February).
