Zanu-PF launched the “command voting” programme in Chinhoyi last week. Under the command voting programme, all cell chairpersons would be obliged to round up all their members and accompany them to the polling stations to vote for party candidates.
Speaking at the launch of the programme, Zanu PF provincial executive Tommy Mwanza said:
Command voting will guarantee us to win Chinhoyi constituency. Every cell chairperson will agree on voting times with his/her members.
With command voting 2018 election is a done deal, we will reclaim Chinhoyi from the invisible (MDC-T MP Peter) Matarutse.
However, MDC-T provincial organising secretary Wilson Makanyaire said:
Zanu PF had been using force and coercion since time immemorial, it’s only now that they are confessing to it. We are not worried or moved by that. As a province, we will remain focused to bring good governance to the country. We will continue to teach the people of Zimbabwe the difference between democracy and dictatorship, between light and darkness.
