MDC made an error

It is clear that Zanu-PF has lost the elections and that is why it is hesitating to release the official presidential results.

But I think Morgan Tsvangarai's MDC made a tactical error by declaring itself the winner before the presidential results were released by the election commission.

He should have waited for the electoral commission.

The premature declaration of victory has hardened Zanu-PF's attitude towards the MDC and has led to a situation that has put the whole nation in suspense.
