Despite Mnangagwa’s Promises Conditions For Free, Fair Elections Not Present: US Senator

United States Senator, Chris Coons, has said that despite President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s positive promises he has taken no concrete steps to ensure free and fair elections. Coons said that Mnangagwa needed to do the right thing by following up on his promises especially considering the amount of time left. Speaking to CGNTV News, Senator Coons said,

But frankly, after what was a very encouraging initial meeting several weeks ago, we have seen no concrete steps in response, the amount of time left before the elections is shrinking, so the importance of taking prompt concrete steps, as to demonstrate the President’s commitment to democracy is becoming more and more important…..but no steps have been taken yet at least not that I am aware of, they has been some encouraging initial meetings with opposition parties, but no concrete steps, so whether you look at EU standards, AU standards, Sadc standards, there are standards for free and fair elections that don’t vary significantly, I urge President Mnangagwa to do the right thing.

  1. I wish Mr Coons would point to us where ED should carry out reforms. As for NOW the Opposition can say anything they want campaign freely because if anyone will have grievances after elections they still have to specify which areas so it’s better he be specific

    1. why hide wherr ballots are to be printed & sample of type of paper to be used. Dont forget you did not review any of the hotly contested constituents in 2008 & 2013 for voters to verify truth about Nikuv paper. If you are alert all health centres have populations of areas they cover logistically, then you start getting abnormal figures from areas like Mkumbura where you fill voting boxes with non existent people.

  2. Guys facts are needed USA is not the best country to talk of Democracy My eyes are quite open for example the name of the man is Coons that’s what white supremacists call us black people and Why is Chamisa friend Trump trying to undo every good thing that Barack Obama did ? Even Guantanamo or a similar thing can be put in place which Barack ordered closed. AMERICAN’S ARE KNOWN TO PUT PUPPETS IN PLACE AND WHEN FINISHED WITH THEM WILL DEPOSE OF.them. Saddam Hussein Noriega Mobutu Sese Seko and so on Tell your wonder boy spaghetti head Chamisa to check where he gets aid from he will sell all our lions and elephants to Trump I hear the racist likes to hunt Zimbabwean game so you see it’s you who may need to open your dozy eyes mate I am black and will not be eaten with my eyes open sematemba
