Information Secretary Criticised For "Celebrating" Low Voter Registration

Information Secretary Criticised For

Information Publicity and Broadcasting Services permanent secretary Nick Mangawana has been criticised for “celebrating” low voter registration.

Mangwana posted on Twitter this Thursday “laughing” at various stakeholders, including the opposition and non-governmental organisations for failing to persuade many people to register to vote. He said:

So all those campaigns and hashtags from self-appointed Social Media Influencers cum Award Winning What what, only produced 2000 registrants? That appears like an organic figure anyway. Guys, stop hyping up your clout. You have very little of it on the ground. #HappyNewYear2022

This post attracted criticism from many people including MDC Alliance spokesperson, Advocate Fadzayi Mahere who said low voter registration depicts the incompetence of the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC). She said:

A whole spokesperson of a regime celebrating low voter registration! He’s ignorant of ZEC’s constitutional mandate under s239c to register voters. The numbers are an indictment on @ZECzim who failed to carry out a blitz, have inadequate centres & no Comms strategy. Incompetence!

Section 239 of the Constitution speaks on the Functions of the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission. It reads:

239. Functions of Zimbabwe Electoral Commission The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission has the following functions–

c.) to register voters;

d. to compile voters’ rolls and registers;

e. to ensure the proper custody and maintenance of voters’ rolls and registers; 

Campaigns to push all eligible people to be registered ahead of the 2023 harmonised elections were run on social media amid reports that 1.6 million youths have attained 18 years and, therefore, can vote.

However, out of that total, only 2 000 registered to vote since the beginning of the campaigns.

Some Political analysts say the registration of youths will likely enhance opposition MDC Alliance’s chances of removing the ruling ZANU PF from power.

Muno here for now elections are a waste of time and human life (because panobhurwa nekupondwa vanhu and even those who hate their neighbors for no reason take the opportunity to hurt them).
Elections in the current environment is just an endorsement of what currently is. "Panongo svasvangwa" opposition.
Pachambonzi KAKEI HAMA DZANGU nyika yakapfeka nhumbi dzimwe chete-madhende iwaya. Mwari wachamutsa achabvarura madhende aya in a way we least expect.
Don't pin hopes on politicians and political change.
God above all. Hardwork. Don't lose hope.
Until the day we have honest, selfless and empathetic leaders who aren't greedy as well NGOMA NDIYO NDIYO MUNO.
