ZEC Officials Face Expulsion For Leaking Information During The 2018 Elections – REPORT

Three Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) officials face expulsion from the institution after an investigation disclosed that they were working with the civil society and opposition parties in the 2018 harmonised elections, a Zim Morning Post report claims.

The officials were reportedly feeding the opposition with information on what was happening in ZEC in a bid to prevent the rigging of the elections. The publication quotes its source as saying:

The opposition was well informed and always on point in various issues prior to the elections, amid suspicion of the existence of a mole or moles within the system.

Once due process is done, the report on internal investigations will be transmitted to the ZEC chairperson, who is likely to order a disciplinary hearing of the three.

The 2018 elections produced a disputed outcome, with MDC leader Nelson Chamisa petitioning the Constitutional Courts to overturn the presidential results which he claimed were “cooked” by ZEC.

Despite the Court finding Chamisa’s “evidence” of rigging inadmissible, the MDC leader rejected the ruling, insisting on negotiations with the declared winner, President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

    Typical rhetoric of brainwashed corrupt fools that think that they are untouchable but like every one to believe they are legitimate
