'Massive Voter Turnout Alone Cannot Overwhelm Vote-rigging System'

'Massive Voter Turnout Alone Cannot Overwhelm Vote-rigging System'

United States-based Zimbabwean Biomedical Scientist and Software Engineer, Freeman Chari, says opposition political parties cannot overwhelm the vote-rigging system by massive turnout alone.

Posting on Twitter, the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) sympathiser argues that the opposition should ensure that the voters’ roll is cleaned to eliminate ghost voters whom he believes were half a million in 2013. Wrote Chari:

In the context of Zimbabwe, claiming that you can overwhelm the rigging system by massive turnout alone is a MYTH.

On the contrary, the system has used this hope based approach to steal and deflate.

I will explain again. In 2013, Mugabe used a Voters Roll that we have analyzed and seen more than 500K+ ghost voters. These are people whose IDs or DOB changed over time.

He gave himself a 62% vote, beating Tsvangirai by 1 million votes. To beat this you would need a 75% turnout.

In 2018, we worked with this assumption and Mugabe’s numbers. Again we analyzed the Voter’s roll and forced ZEC to make numerous edits.

Still, there were about 500k+ voters whose existence was questionable. We predicted that we needed 74+% for Nelson Chamisa to win.

Nelson managed to push turnout to 70%. The system padded the results with pretty much the same range of ghosts that we had flagged.

The system has the capacity to overwhelm the opposition because we generally don’t pay attention to the little details.

We went to an election without a Voters Roll. We have seen Polling Station codes change. How do you know which polling stations are legit?

With our archaic systems, how do you collate results from all the 10 800 polling stations and identify fake from genuine for all the elections?

For me, the most important thing in an election is a Voters Roll. Without that, we are wasting time. We are lying to people and giving them false hope.

Let us interrogate our weakness and stop living on hope, prayer and fasting without covering the basics!

@ least people who are opposite jus for the sake of being opposition can now see that the word missing is reforms, they not there coz they change things.

Then the question remains that goes, why participate in an election without reforms that you say you need?

Someone once said it pays to be an opposition n truly it does make sense if it keeps happening that opposition parties participate only to cry and look forward to next elections

Chinonetsa ndechekuti chero mukapihwa zvitupa ka. Realize kuti 1 thing chichanetsa ndechekuti ZEC has the decision yekuRigger or not. Hazvibatsire, it's hopeless. CCC should ask mamwe maCountries for voter things because right now imagine kuti maresults anoverengwa manually hazvibatsire!. Panotofanira kuita electronic method yekuti panoiswa number of voters paPolling station imomo, then pese panovotwa pachiiswa maPoints kune maParties acho. Kana pakaRegistwa 20 people paPolling station, vachingosvika 20 vanhu vaVhota chete zvatovharana. Because hmmm, manual iyi toparikubiwa maVotes zvisingaite. Zvotonetsa

Preying and fasting is for the lazy, those who want real victory know what needs to be done. Jonathan Moyo expraned krieri what needs to be done. Ghosts can't cast votes where agents are awake unless the agents are paid to look the other way.
Agent record the numbers of people who cast votes at polling stations and those numbers should tally with the total ballots at the station. Ghosts can only be slotted in if all agents are in agreement.
Last weekend we had some opposition agents were taking money from ruling party candidates or their agents.
Stop the wild goose chase and encourage people to vote

freeman you speak facts but the opposition is not sincere about these things. they should make sure they have the voters roll before elections. but as always they will claim they have all under control only to cry foul after losing

You did a noble thing letting them know that you have their particulars but charging them now will be extortion as your help may be mistaken to mean you stole them to make money out of it. long story short, why don't you you take the nearest police station and they will go get them from there. that's how the law says should be done
