Zimbabwe`s President Robert Mugabe (right) participates in the inaugural ceremony held at the presidential office in Harare Sunday. An hour before the ceremony, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission announced that Mugabe won 85 percent of the votes (2,150,269), overwhelming opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai who only got 9 percent of the vote (233,000). Since the presidential election in March, more than 80 Zimbabweans have been killed and around 200,000 others have become refugees due to political turbulence and violence.
