In London, outside the Embassy of the Republic of Zimbabwe, supporters of the opposition to the Zimbabwe ruling party have staged a peaceful Vigil every Saturday since 2002 to draw attention to human rights abuses in the country.
President Robert Mugabe's 33 year rule in Zimbabwe is set to continue after a landslide victory in the August 2013 election which his critics believe was rigged. Prime Minister and leader of the opposition, Morgan Tsvangirai, filed a legal challenge urging the constitutional court to overturn Mr Mugabe's victory and order a re-run. However, all the judges were appointed by the president and the chances of this challenge succeeding are minimal. The London Vigil continues until freedom comes.
