Secretary for Security for the opposition MDC-T and former Home Affairs Minister Giles Mutsekwa has said that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) is not independent at all as it takes its orders from the ruling Zanu-PF party. Addressing journalists in Mutare last Friday, Mutsekwa said,
If you attack [Zec] on the issue of electoral reforms, there is someone who is quick to defend (Zec) on the issue of the voters’ roll and the someone is supposed to be a political player and that is Zanu PF. There is no separation between Zanu PF and Ze. It’s untrue that we are similar to Zec. As a party, we also follow Zec resolutions − it’s an independent body.
