Robert talks to NPR's Kenneth Walker in Harare, Zimbabwe, about the dramatic gains by the political opposition in last weekend's parliamentary election. Final results show the opposition Movement for Democratic Change will hold 57 of the 150 seats in the parliament. The opposition only had three seats in the previous parliament. The opposition's strong showing came despite a campaign of violence and intimidation against its supporters prior to the vote.
