The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) has reversed the results for the Chegutu West parliamentary seat. Zanu-PF candidate Dexter Nduna had been initially announced as the winner with 10 932 votes. However, Gift Konjana of the MDC Alliance who had polled 10 828 challenged the result and was able to provide evidence that there had been counting anomalies. Zec has now declared Konjana as the winner of the Chegutu West Seat. In a letter to the MDC Alliance, Zec wrote,

RE: DISCREPANCY OF ELECTION RESULTS ANNOUNCED IN RESPECT OF CHEGUTU WEST

The above matter refers

The source documents of the results do indicate that there is a discrepancy in results announced in respect of Konjana Gift Machoka of Chegutu West Constituency. The discrepancy occured due to a transcription error from V23A to V23B at the Constituency during data capturing.

The data capturers explained that the results of Konjana Gift Machoka (MDC Alliance) and Kache Simon (UCADGZ) were interchanged. That is, instead of capturing Kache’s results as one (1) and Konjana’s as one hundred and twenty-one (121) they were reversed giving Kache (121) and Konjana (1)

The transcription error resulted in Konjana Gift getting ten thousand eight hundred and twenty eight (10 828) votes against Nduna Dexters’s ten thousand nine hundred and thirty-two (10 932).

If the error is corrected Konjana Gift’s result would be ten thousand nine hundred and forty eight (10948) votes against Nduna Dexter’s (ZANU-PF) ten thousand nine hundred and thirty-two (10 932). This makes Konjana Gift (MDC Alliance) the winner instead of Nduna.

    All the 6 idiots comments here are stupid—-this is an honest mistake that has been corrected—-as if all of you are perfect!1 the important thing is that a mistake has been corrected and it makes sense given how close the two contestants were! Stop being so intolerant—mistakes happen!!

    Results are not published by one guys sitting on a corner desk. Its a team that verifies and does counter checks. How many more mistakes should we expect from Presidential counts – covering hundreds of constituencies? AWESOME you are either naive or compromised.
