Anti-riot police called in at voter registration centre as people become angry

Anti-riot police were called in at a Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) registration centre in Mbare after prospective voters became restive.

MDC-T spokesperson Obert Gutu who was at the centre when police arrived, told NewsDay that people became angry after waiting long hours. Said Gutu:

There is chaos. There is just one machine being manned by three people yet there are hundreds of people outside. The service is painstakingly slow and people are obviously very angry and they become very restless. What surprises me is that anti-riot police came to disturb people and people scattered, it’s like a war zone.
