Opposition Citizens’ Coalition for Change (CCC) has claimed that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) denied the party’s polling agents entry into Lawrence Primary School in Marondera saying they are not registered with the electoral body.
In a Twitter post, the party said:
#ByelectionsViolence Lawrence Primary School, Ward 23 of Marondera East our agents are being denied entry into the polling stations to monitor the voting process alleging that they’re not registered with @ZECzim.
There were mixed opinions on the report. Some observers expressed frustration in the party for not being proactive. Pindula News presents some of the comments on the post:
Viv T. @viv_sibanda:
Are they registered?

Did they register? Are they required to register? Is this their first time at that polling station? Thought they came there for training and etc before.
Mr Lee @leethamboh1:
So varikuenda nhasi really?

Just yesterday you were saying that all the Agents had been deployed to guard the ballots, now where are they coming from? did they not sleep there?
