Speaking to The Herald, Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) chairperson Justice Rita Makarau said that they are expecting the first batch of 400 biometric voter registration (BVR) kits on August 31.
Makarau said that ZEC will use some of the kits to rain 100 trainers who will then be deployed to train others. Said Makarau:
We are expecting the batch of 400 kits on 31 August. We will use some of the kits to train 100 master trainers for at least one week. After we are satisfied with their performance we will deploy them in provinces to train others. During the same time we will also train technicians who will service our machines if they develop faults.
