We Don't Need The Diaspora Vote - ZANU PF

We Don't Need The Diaspora Vote - ZANU PF

A ZANU PF youth leader from Masvingo Province said the ruling party does not need the votes of Zimbabweans living and working in the Diaspora in the 2023 elections as it is content with the local votes.

Charles Munganasa, a ZANU PF Masvingo youth league executive member, said the national Constitution does not provide for Zimbabweans abroad to vote in local elections from their host countries.

Munganasa was speaking during a Zimbabwe Union of Journalists (ZUJ) discussion held in Masvingo city on the state of preparedness by political parties ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Responding to an MDC Alliance member and former Masvingo Central legislator, Jeffreyson Chitando, who has asked whether the ruling party was considering citizens living abroad to vote in the next harmonised elections during the question and answer segment, Munganasa said:

ZANU PF is a party that respects the Constitution of Zimbabwe. We move with what is in the Constitution of the country. It is up to you (MDC Alliance) because you are the ones who want the Diaspora vote.

The people who are voting for us, the people who are in rural areas, the people who are in cities, we are content with those people. We have not yet got to the time to say ZANU PF we need the Diaspora vote.

There are also other African countries that are having very successful elections without the Diaspora vote. Maybe, if you think that will add to your numbers, you can advocate for that.

ZANU PF has previously said it will only consider giving Zimbabweans in the diaspora the right to vote if western powers remove the targeted sanctions that they imposed on Zimbabwe.
