MDC Alliance spokesperson Professor Welshman Ncube has dismissed statements made by Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) chairperson Justice Priscilla Chigumba that the Voters Roll cannot be changed even if it has irregularities. Chigumba said that in such a case the only thing the opposition can do is to challenge the results of the election. Responding to Justice Chigumba’s claims Professor Ncube said,

We have always said that Zec was not ready for the elections. (President) Emmerson (Mnangagwa) could not have proclaimed the election date before the roll was ready. If there is no final voters’ roll, then the election was called prematurely. We cannot have a situation that after four or five days after nomination, the voters’ roll is not out. There is nowhere in the world, even in a Banana republic you can have that. As for Chigumba to give us lessons on legal remedies, she is not the ideal person. Anything can be challenged as long as it violates the Constitution.
