    The country has not stopped protesting the election outcome. Most voting stations were out of ballots by 10am, voters scrambled to find a station, fraud seems to be the popular thought.

    Equally interesting, a media blackout. Not on TV, radio nor internet are national news resources reporting on the protests. We are receiving our news on facebook from all over the world as people are capturing videos on youtube and posting them so that we can see them.
