Zec Denies Jonathan Moyo’s Claims It Is Helping Zanu-PF Rig 2018 Elections

Posted by Tayana Read 3 Comments

In a statement yesterday, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) denied Professor Jonathan Moyo’s claim that it has already availed a physical copy of the voters’ roll to Zanu-PF.

Zec said it is in the second round of de-deplication exercise of the voters’ roll to deal with people who registered during inspection of the BVR. Said Zec;

That is false and mischievous (that Zec has availed the voters’ roll to Zanu PF). The voters’ roll will be furnished to all political parties and candidates once the commission avails it in line with the provisions of the (Electoral) Act. At the moment, we are doing a second round of de-duplication using AFIS after we had registrants during the inspection of the BVR, we expect to be finished very soon.

Zec also denied that there were Chinese experts that had been seconded to work with them. It also denied allegations that they were going to create new polling stations.

    Well, well, well … the level of opaqueness of this ZEC beast and it previous misnomers makes people nervous. we not sure if they are telling the truth or not. In any case did we expect them to accept such allegations given all the pronouncements about free and fair? The good thing is it keeps people talking! And on the authorities’ toes…!

  3. Phakathi says:

    The Minister of Justice last night appeared alone with nobody else from other parties to speak o the ZEC slot for the day and apparently speaking on behalf of ZEC. How does ZEC reconcile this with it stance on independence. The Minister would seem to have vindicated what Jonathan is saying.
