By-election Update: CCC Polling Agents Withdrawing After Receiving Threats

By-election Update: CCC Polling Agents Withdrawing After Receiving Threats

It has emerged that some opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) polling agents are withdrawing their participation after receiving unspecified threats.

CCC deputy secretary for elections Ellen Shiriyendenga claimed their polling agents are pulling out due to fear after having been intimidated by suspected ZANU PF activists and traditional leaders in rural areas.

Shiriyedenga said the rate at which some polling agents are pulling out was worrisome. Shiriyedenga said:

We are getting a worrying trend with regards to our polling agents. Particularly you go to Marondera East, Murewa South and also Mwenezi South, where we are having our polling agents being intimidated to an extent that some actually withdrew out of fear and that culture of fear is going unabated.

So we are saying the responsible bodies, do the right thing.

CCC national spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere also said that there have been reports of bribes and fear being instilled in citizens with their political rivals. Mahere said:

We do not want any illegal conduct at polling stations. We have received reports already of threats being made by certain traditional leaders who are acting unlawfully in a partisan manner. We have heard threats of intimidation. We have heard reports that names are going to be taken down and follow-ups will be made on them. That simply has to stop.

Mahere added that CCC’s elections directorate headed up by councillor Ian Makoni and his deputy Ellen Shiriyedenga are working round the clock to ensure polling agents are deployed in all the wards and constituencies.

Meanwhile, the party has claimed that some of its polling agents are being turned away by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) which is saying they are not registered with the commission.

CCC a bunch of cry babies.this was going to happen ccc knew this all along.

In zanupf strong holds opposition is and will always be intimidated,when they said they where training their agents.what we they training them to do??they should have been teaching them about this.

Hold your own against these bullies, posting on Twitter won't stop zanu from intimidating you. Yes you are letting the world know but nobody will help you, Ukraine should be a good example for you

At the first instance of trouble busy posting rather than taking action. Word should be backed by action. If you say you are ready for elections then show that you are ready,not just tweet tweet tweet, f#cking useless na 2023 ndizvozvo ngoma ndiyo ndiyo bunch of pussies

Is CCC the only opposition party in those areas?
Can threats alone lead to withdrawal?
If you withdraw do you tell people you were rigged?
Are there no police officers at polling stations?
Mahere why can't you go there and see for yourself instead of reporting second hand information...
