"Elections Now A Divisive Rather Than A Unifying Factor" - ZEC

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has said elections in the country have become divisive instead of being a unifying factor.

The electoral body also claimed that elections in the country were now a security issue.

ZEC maintains that the poor public response to its voter registration exercises this year was because Zimbabweans do not trust its management of the electoral processes.

These remarks were made by ZEC deputy chairperson Rodney Kiwa at a pre-delimitation stakeholdersโ€™ meeting with journalists in Harare yesterday. Said Kiwa:ย 

The 2023 harmonised elections are literally around the corner, the election mood is obviously palpable. Elections are also exercises in the management of emotions, and politicians are masters in whipping them. Elections have become a national security issue.

Elections have become a divisive rather than a unifying factor in this country. We have a country to build for future generations, let us all leave a legacy that will be admired by our children which is anchored on tolerance and responsible leadership.

Before, during and after the March 26 by-elections, opposition political parties accused ZEC of bias toward the ruling ZANU PF adding that the commission needs to be disbanded for the 2023 elections to be credible.

The commission denies the allegations saying politicians want to gain mileage by misleading the electorate.

ZEC says the accusations of election rigging were causing voter apathy as the electorate was concluding that casting votes wonโ€™t change anything in the governance of the country.

CCC has won the last by-elections, but has gone on to say they were not free and fair. Why? ZRP has denied CCC a chance to campaign. ZEC has not attended to a faulty Voters roll. There are plenty other anomalies, raised by Team Pachedu which zec6 has not responded to or addressed.

in short CCC won in spite of ZEC and ZRP. that's doesn't make the election free and fair

Nikita mangeya 1ย month ago

methinx it's ZEC not elections that is posing a security risk because of its perceived bias & alleged lack of transparency.
Shifting the blame will neither make the elections free and fair nor convince the electorate to register to vote.
I exhort the Commission to cease the bull by the horns and resign enmass for the sake of peace,democracy and progress.
Current trends in voter apathy is a compelling indictment against ZEC.
Are too blind to see & too dead to hear?

@Blue and @Mujibha, swallowing ZANU propaganda hook line and sinker is causing you Diarrhoeal thinking. No CCC youth has ever been caught looting. @Mujibha says " their youth aim to break into shops.. and loot.." How laughable. How do you know their aim before the event has taken place?

You go on to say that they don't register to vote, and yet CCC has resoundingly won in the 2 series of by-elections held so far! You don't make an iota of sense.

As for not doing things peacefully, need I remind you of Mboneni Ncube of Kwekwe who was callously murdered by ZANU people? Which CCC youth has been arraigned before the court for violence?

@Blue, thank you for voting for ZANU but I can't thank you for being a sore loser, because in the last by-elections you resoundingly lost to CCC
