MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa has alleged that he has evidence that President Emmerson Mnangagwa and Zanu-Pf are planning to substitute the ballot papers with another batch which corresponding serial numbers. Chamisa said that he had been tipped off by an informant that the second batch of ballot papers will be pre-marked in favour of Zanu-PF. Speaking during an E-rally on Monday night, Chamisa said,
…They will have a pre-marked ballot which then will have a percentage say 70% for Mnangagwa, 30% for Chamisa or they may even want to prop up (Thokozani) Khupe to become their front person and give her a few percentage points to complete the whole picture. So, as you go to vote, when you are voting in the fictitious ballot, that ballot does no show or reflect you because it has already been pre-marked. But the moment you place your X on that ballot paper the ink that is placed on that ballot paper is then going to activate, remove it after some few hours, once is it removed then the pre-marked point is then going to reflect in favour of Mnangagwa.
