NOTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE IN ZEC BECAUSE THE NEW STAFF IS TO MANIPULATE THE PEOPLE'S VOTE BUT THEY ARE WELL TRAINED PEOPLE TO SAVE THE PEOPLE'S VOTE

WHEN CHAMISA LAST MONTH SAID HE HAS HIS EYES IN ZEC, KKKKKKK, THIS WENT TO THE PRESIDENT'S BRAIN AND BREWED SOME SOUR TACTICS OF DEVASTATING THE ZEC GROUP BY INSERTING HIS BEST FRIENDS BUT WON'T WORK BECAUSE THE HEAD OF ZEC DEPARTMENT IS STILL IN POWER AND IS ALSO THE EYES OF CHAMISA.

THIS TIME THINGS HAVE CHANGED. NO MATTER WHAT TACTICS ARE BREWED CCC IS GOING TO WIN.

THE PEOPLE ARE TIRED. JESUS IS IN ZEC NOW. EVERYTHING IS WELL ORGANIZED NOW.

ALL NEW MEMBERS TO ZEC ARE TO RESCUE ZIMBABWE. NO MORE RIGING

THE FIRED STAFF FROM ZANU PF WILL TELL CHAMISA EVERYTHING AND THEY DID THIS SECRETLY LONG TIME BACK. THEY ARE NOW TO FULL FILL THE PROMISES

THEY KNEW THAT THEY WILL DANCE AND THEY PLANNED FOR THEIR FUTURE AT THE NEW HOT YELLOWS.

STIRRING OF OLD ZEC PERSONNELS BY OLD ZANU PF CADRES WON'T STOP THE PEOPLE TO VOTE FOR THE CCC. IT NOW AN ADVANTAGE

I DO NOT HIS EXCELLENCY PRESIDENT ED MNANGAGWA IS SOLVING PROBLEMS AT ZEC. THIS PURGING OF THE BOARD DOES NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEMS. ZEC IS UNABLE TO COMPILE CORRECT VOTERS ROLLS. THE SOLUTION IS TO DISBAND THE WHOLE ZEC IN TOTO.

Considering that almost all Chairpersons were judges before assuming the post, will this deputy ever qualify for the Chairperson post?

The law says Chair of ZEC has to be the equivalent of a High Court judge.
