MDC-T takes Mugabe to court to stop voter registration

Posted by Tayana

MDC-T Secretary General Douglas Mwonzora told Studio 7 that they are taking President Robert Mugabe to court following his proclamation of dates for conducting biometric voter registration by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) ahead of the crucial 2018 general elections.

Mwonzora argues that ZEC is not yet ready to register voters since it is still training people who will register voters. He also points out that ZEC has not yet received all the machines for conducting biometric voter registration and severs for storing the collected data. Other respondents to the MDC-T court application are ZEC and Justice Minister, Emmerson Mnangagwa.
