Election observers should come early to monitor everything to prevent political violence says ZCTU

The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) is urging the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and other international groups to deploy election monitors early to prevent political violence. The ZCTU believes that this is the only way to hold free and fair elections in 2018, as the monitors will be able to see everything starting with the registration process.

In a statement the labour union’ Secretary General, Japhet Moyo said:

We call for the early deployment of elections observers from SADC and the international community to monitor the environment right from the voter registration process until after the announcement of the election results.

Observers usually come at the last minute but we need them to be here now, since campaigning has already started with some political parties using unorthodox means to garner support for their candidates.

Zimbabweans need to go to the polls under a peaceful environment.
