The BBC are reporting that "Zimbabwe's government and electoral chiefs have warned the main opposition MDC it should not declare an early victory in the presidential poll. The MDC, which has repeatedly expressed fears of rigging, has started to quote unofficial returns, saying it has 67% of the vote so far and "has won". The information minister accused the MDC of "speculation and lies"."

I am afraid that any celebration may be very premature, first there were reports last week that Robert Mugabe has many many extra ballot boxes full of votes for himself to be added to the count and if these votes are not enough then the army can probably still be relied upon to put down the MDC.
