Intelligence Chiefs 'Report' Kazembe To Mnangagwa Over Alleged Rigging

Intelligence Chiefs 'Report' Kazembe To Mnangagwa Over Alleged Rigging

Intelligence chiefs have reportedly informed President Emmerson Mnangagwa about “a massive rigging plot” in the party’s Mashonaland Central provincial chairmanship election.

Reports suggest Collen Mharadzano, a senior elections officer, denied intelligence officers entry into the ICT room where results collation was being done.

NewZimbabwe reports that Mharadzano, allegedly received US$25 000 from Home Affairs Minister Kazembe Kazembe to turn figures for him after his rival Tafadzwa Musarara raced ahead of him.

This resulted in a scuffle as the security agents, comprising of members of the Central Intelligence Organisation and the Zimbabwe Military Intelligence confronted him over the decision.

That is when he claimed he had been instructed to do so by Mnangagwa. A source said:

Mharadzano tried to deny national security officers from entering the ICT room where results are being collated. The room is based at the Zanu PF provincial headquarters in Bindura.

Upon being quizzed on why he has done that, Mharadzano claimed he had been personally instructed by President Mnangagwa. However, upon investigations, and checks with their bosses, it was discovered that this was a lie and President Mnangagwa has been briefed about it. He received US$25 000 from Kazembe to turn results for him.

This comes after the ruling party’s secretary for security, Lovemore Matuke, had candidates in the provincial coordinating committee (PCC) election against cheating and violence, saying those found guilty will be expelled.

The party is on a restructuring exercise ahead of the 2023 elections. It is electing provincial chairpersons of the main wing, women’s league and the youth in all the 10 provinces.

Reports of rigging come after party officials have argued that the intra-party elections had demonstrated that ZANU PF is a democratic political party.

The governing party has in the past been accused of manipulating electoral processes with the help of state institutions including the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission and the army.

THERE IS A LOT OF HOGWASH IN THIS REPORT TO BELIEVE IT IN ITS TOTALITY.

I DO NOT THINK CAMARADA KAZEMBE KAZEMBE WOULD DO SUCH A CHILDISH THING OF PAYING US$25 000 TO SOMEONE TO MANIPULATE ELECTION RESULTS IN HIS FAVOUR.

I FAIL TO UNDERSTAND IF CAMARADA MHARADZANO INDEED BARRED SECURITY PERSONNEL ENTRY INTO THE ROOM WHERE VOTE COUNTING WAS TAKING PLACE. WHY WOULD MHARADZANO CRACK WITHIN A SPLIT SECOND AND ADMIT TO HAVING BEEN PAID US$20 000 BY CDE KAZEMBE KAZEMBE ?

IF THIS SECURITY TEAM WAS A GOOD AND EXPERIENCED SECURITY TEAM, THEY WOULD HAVE TOLD US BY NOW HOW MUCH THEY HAVE RECOVERED FROM MHARADZANO.

IF IT WAS A GOOD SECURITY TEAM , IT WOULD HAVE IMMEDIATELY INTERVIEWED KAZEMBE KAZEMBE TO HEAR HIS SIDE OF THE STORY.

WHO WAS THE OVERALL IN CHARGE OF THESE ELECTIONS IN MASHONALAND CENTRAL PROVINCE ? IN OTHER PROVINCES, WE HEAR OF NAMES OF VERY SENIOR ZANU PF OFFICIALS. WHO IS THIS COLLEN MHARADZANO IN ZANU PF STRUCTURES ?

I AM NOT DEFENDING HONORABLE MINISTER OF HOME AFFAIRS, KAZEMBE KAZEMBE. IF CDE KAZEMBE KAZEMBE ORCHESTRATED HIS RIGGING PLAN IN THE FASHION WHICH IS DESCRIBED IN THIS CHAT, THEN I AM SORRY TO SAY CDE KAZEMBE KAZEMBE IS NOT WORTH HIS SALT AS MINISTER OF HOME AFFAIRS.

THE PROBLEM WHICH ZANU PF HAS IN MASHONALAND CENTRAL IS THAT THERE ARE SOME MEMBERS WHO THINK THEY ARE MORE ZANU PF THAN OTHERS.

CIO and military intelligence have been wasting resources for years recklessly abusing taxpayers money. We need to reboot those organizations and refresh their values and priorities
