Robert Mugabe hints at Zimbabwe election date

Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe has hinted that elections could be held in the first three months of 2011, even though the referendum on a new constitution is yet to be finalised.

His Zanu-PF party is holding its annual conference in Mutare, with its campaign strategy likely to be high on the agenda.

Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai is demanding that the elections be closely monitored by an independent body - six months before and after the event.
