Roman Catholic Church Urges Zimbabweans To Register To Vote

Roman Catholic Church Urges Zimbabweans To Register To Vote

The Roman Catholic Church, one of the largest Christian denominations in the country, has called on Zimbabweans to register to vote and ensure that they vote in the 2023 general elections.

In an interview with CITE, Archdiocese of Bulawayo Archbishop Alex Thomas said his church is committed to ensuring that citizens exercise their right to vote. He said:

It is the duty of every citizen in the country to exercise his or her freedom to choose their civic leaders during the time of elections. This requires an adult person to be registered as a voter.

There has been a lot of apathy among many people to register for voting. I encourage every eligible voter to register and exercise their duties responsibly.

As a church, we are very proactive. I encourage priests to remind congregants of the importance of voting when they hold masses.

The church has at least six parishes that are used as registration centres by the Zimbabwe Election Commission (ZEC).

This shows the commitment that we have as a church to ensure that citizens exercise their rights.

Why registering to vote matters

  • Bulawayo Metropolitan Province is among the provinces with low numbers of registered voters.
  • The province will lose some constituencies during the delimitation process which is set to take place next year if the number of registered voters does not increase significantly.

People of Bulawayo, register to and vote. See we are fighting tribal battles and blaming Shonas for "being in power" for 42 years yet we live in the same Zimbabwe and statistics show fewer than normal people in Bulawayo are voters. This crying won't lead Matebeleland anyway. See even now, we don't have a strong opposition political party with strong Ndebele roots as was ZAPU before it merged with ZANU. Now that ZAPU is active again, we don't hear of strong rallies yet we fight and accuse Shonas. Nobody is coming to save you and apathy won't help. A generation of Ndebeles is coming that we say you were cowards for allowing all this to befall us. Do something about this. The Shonas may be messing as we say but they are "doing". Register to vote or Matebeland constituences will continue to shrink. That means lesser representation in parliament lesser financial resources to the province and ultimately no development so KUKAKA continues
These tribalistic verbal assults need to end. They are not healthy for our country or this platform.

The Dumb Political party in a century @ZANU pf.
1)They claim they are Goliath and the opposition is the handsome God annoited David @Chamisa.
2)They supply their supporters maize seeds and fertilizers at the end of rain season and afterwards try to implement cloud seeding when the grops are already dry and dead.
3)They promise tittle deeds to people without residential stands/tenants
4)They go on a drinking spree to their former colonists and spent US millions of dollars and forget to pay their school teachers.
6)They donate maize meal to a neighboring country,while expecting drought
7)They donate vaccines to a economic strong nation @Botswana
8)The honorable attends a function high on alcohol and forgets they are cameras
9)They want to Re bury a very angry former President against his will.
10)The blame, insult the USA daily while using their currency the US$
11)They chased away the real business people and invited the Chinese ninjas..
