ZEC Considers Criminal Action Against People Who Registered Multiple Times

Justice Priscilla Chigumba the chairperson for the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) has revealed that her organisation is considering filing criminal cases against people who registered multiple times through the Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) system. Said Chigumba,

There are some who deliberately and intentionally registered more than once. We have a list of them and we are contemplating whether or not as a commission we should refer that list to the police for prosecution and say these people made a false statement. That affidavit form that was signed during registration was a declaration that the information given was correct.

So what they were then saying in terms of that information (for example is) I live in Kuwadzana and then go to another polling station and say I am declaring this information to be true that I live in Mbare. And you do the same thing in other areas. This action creates administrative problems. We have a mandate to perform and doing that (multiple registration) is tantamount to playing with us. If you left a number we contact you and ask what happened. If you are aware (of what you did), you have committed an offence. What we are hoping to do is to deter people from doing that in future.
