Chivi South aspiring legislator Killer Zivhu and Chivi councillor, Alderman Tafirei Mhosva have said that Whatsapp and Bulk Messaging are very effective methods of reaching prospective voters. Zivhu said he has already sold the idea to the Zanu-PF Commissariat. Said Mhosva,
It is no longer a matter of how much you spend on the electorate. Take the electorate seriously, because money is not enough. You can spend money and slaughter a beast, splash goodies yet you can still lose. That does not translate to votes. People just come for the food and regalia and you will be shocked when the results come, like what happened to many during the primaries.
Bulk messaging worked for me. This is the method we want to use. This method works. It’s effective and cheap. I appealed to many people and you also talk to them and answer questions if it’s WhatsApp, unlike at a rally where you may not have the chance to get people’s thoughts.
