ZLHR To Take Zanu-PF To Court Over Text Messages, Have Candidates Disqualified For Vote Buying

Addressing a meeting of the ZCTU’s elected leadership Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR)’s Noble Chinhano said they are working on challenging the sending of mobile phone text messages to individuals by Zanu-PF.

He also said they are looking into challenging the candidacy of some candidates involved in vote buying. Said Chinhano:

We are working on a chamber application, but we can’t point at ZEC because there is no proof; still, political parties are not allowed to send such messages to people. When the messages were initially sent we thought it was a service provider, but we got to understand it could not be. We don’t think it’s (industry regulator) POTRAZ because they (whoever provided the information to Zanu PF) have more information than what these guys have. We think that only the commission has that information. It is very intimidating to receive such information because you would know they know where you stay; they know your phone number, that is scary.
