“Chigumba Will Be Gone By 2023”

Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) chairperson Justice Priscilla Chigumba and fellow commissioners will be removed from their posts before the 2023 general elections.

This was said by a member of the Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD), National Constitutional Assembly (NCA) leader Lovemore Madhuku, in an interview with NewsDay. He said:

She (Justice Chigumba) will not be there in 2023, you can get it from us, she was appointed, she will have to resign or somewhat compensated, but 2023 elections will not be run by a chairperson who was appointed by the President.

In the 2023 elections, the whole commission will be appointed by a body of politicians who are players.

That is the reform that we want. We actually want the Constitution to be amended. To have a conference of political actors to endorse the commission.

However, when contacted for comment, ZANU PF representative at POLAD and politburo member, Munyaradzi Paul Mangwana, professed ignorance over plans to remove Chigumba from her role by the State House interlocutors.
