High Court Dismisses MDC Alliance’s Application Challenging Postal Ballot Process Done By Police


Mutare High Court judge Justice Hlekani Mwayera on Tuesday dismissed an application by the MDC Alliance, challenging the postal ballot process done by the Zimbabwe Republic Police at Ross Camp in Bulawayo. The MDC Alliance alleged that the process had violated the secrecy of the vote and sought to have the votes declared null and void. Justice Mwayera dismissed the application saying that there was inadequate evidence showing that police officers had voted while being watched by their commanders.

MDC Alliance lawyer Passmore Nyakureba told NewsDay,

We went to the High court in Mutare seeking an order to have postal voting that happened in Bulawayo on July 12 be declared as null and void on grounds of violating sections of the Electoral Act which compels voting to be done in privacy. We appeared before Justice Mwayera. She said we should have evidence. The matter was dismissed.

  1. Kwanai. How could u make noise when u don’t have enough evidence. And ur daft lawyer leads u to court without evidence.

  2. Im a police officer by Ross Camp noone was forced to vote for E.D and there were no soldiers threatening us please do not drag our camp name in the mud

  3. I was one of the people who ran to Ross Camp immediately after the news circulated but to my surprise the rumours were lies

  4. election iri rinenge rakuenda kunobata bata. MDC Alliance inongoramba ichingochema chema. why are they always complaining

  5. mdc wants to play a game they cannot handle. now they are declaring war if their issues are not addressed

  6. Yes they should put foward their griviances how do u explain the design of the ballot paper with 14 rows on the first column and 9 rows on the second column designed to clearly give an advantage to one of the candidates to appear at the top of the second column. Common sense and fairness shud have produced a design with 12 rows on the first column and 11 rows on the second column.
