The MDC-T has complained that the provisional voters’ roll produced by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has a number of anomalies and is not “clean.” In a statement, the MDC-T said,
Today marks the last day of the voters’ roll inspection. The anomalies have been glaring and telling. These anomalies justify our deafening calls for an independent audit of the Biometric Voters’ Roll.
Reported incidences of details sent on cellphones from ZEC not corresponding with the physical roll are worrisome. Some names are entered correctly, but the gender is incorrect. Others have received messages confirming their registration centres but upon physical inspection, realised they had been posted to a different polling station, or their names were missing completely from the roll.

We have also received reports where people are re-registering themselves but in different wards and constituencies. A case in point is the registration of residents of Ward 45 in Harare East onto the ward 25 of Goromonzi South voters’ roll. And the commissioner of oaths to the residential affidavits is one Terrence Mukupe whose recent notorious and treasonous utterances that the Zanu PF regime will not accept an election result that favours the opposition, leaves a lot to be desired.
If ZEC cannot produce a clean voters’ roll, then it casts an aspersion on the credibility of this upcoming election. Little wonder why there was little information and voter education on inspecting the Voter’s roll, and the refusal by ZEC to give us a copy of the provisional voters’ roll. We demand a searchable copy of this voters’ roll so that we are able to assist ZEC in identifying all the duplicates and fictitious names in the current roll.
