Zanu PF accused of telling voters in Bikita West to declare themselves illiterate so that they can be assisted to vote by Zanu PF youths

Bikita South legislator Jeppy Jaboon and Zanu PF politburo member Josiah Hungwe reportedly asked voters to declare they are “illiterate” when they cast their ballots during the Bikita West by-election so that they can be assisted to vote by Zanu PF youths.

The two Zanu PF officials allegedly said so during a rally on Saturday at Bikita Minerals Recreation Hall. A Heal Zimbabwe Trust report says:

Zanu PF ward chairperson Simon Muchafa called people for a rally . . . attended by . . . Jaboon, Zanu PF candidate Beauty Chabaya and Zanu PF politburo member . . . Hungwe. Jaboon and Hungwe emphasised that the people should declare themselves illiterate on the day of the by-election so that they can be assisted by Zanu PF youths whom they said will be deployed at every polling station on the day of the by-election.

When asked by the Daily News, Jaboon denied the allegation saying it could have been someone else not him. Efforts  by the publication to get comment from Hungwe were fruitless as his mobile phone was reachable.
