MDC-T president Nelson Chamisa has claimed that his party has discovered a plot to rig the 2018 elections by Zanu-PF. He went on to declare that if his party does not get 70 percent of the vote, then the elections would have been rigged. Speaking at a rally in Nyanga, Chamisa said,
If we don’t get 70% of the vote, then they would have rigged the election. We have done our homework, we’ve done in it in Harare, Bulawayo, Manicaland, Matabeleland.
We are here because we are aware that this is where most of our voters are and we need to change your lives and we are in a season of change. I know there are soldiers, who have been sent to rural areas and they are not in uniform, but disguised as civilians to monitor your activities ahead of the polls.
