ZEC Records 5.7 Million Registered Voters

ZEC Records 5.7 Million Registered Voters

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) says it has so far recorded five million, six hundred and forty-seven thousand (5 647 000) registered voters countrywide for next year’s elections.

In a statement, ZEC Commissioner Joyce Kazembe said 22 000 dead people have been removed from the voters roll.

She also said that voter registration was voluntary and continuous according to the law. Said Kazembe:

By end of November 2021, we had recorded 5 647 000 registered voters for 2023 elections including the new ones and those that had registered in the previous elections.

The figure provided by the commission was of voters registered in 2021 and is not the cumulative figure in the country’s voter’s roll.

Please note that the figure is added to already registered voters in the voters roll.

The Commission implores all prospective registrants to visit our 63 districts and 10 provincial offices to get registered.

… Come 2023, the commission will be ready to hold the general elections without any hurdles.

ZEC has of late come under intense scrutiny over allegations that it was under-reporting registration statistics across the country.

Last week, the electoral body revised upwards the number of newly registered voters in 2021 after members of the public disputed its recent disclosure that only 2 000 people had registered to vote.

On Friday, ZEC released new statistics that showed that only 2 971 new voters were registered to vote countrywide, contrary to the 2 000 that the ZEC commissioner Jasper Mangwana announced last week Wednesday.

WELL DONE ZEC, YOU HAVE ALMOST COVERED TARGETS DEMANDED BY THE TWO MAIN CONTESTANTS, MDC ALLIANCE AND ZANU PF WHOSE TARGETS ARE: ZANU PF 5 MILLION, MDC ALLIANCE 6 MILLION.

KEEP ON ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO COME AND REGISTER, INCLUDING THE THIS WRITER. THIS IS GOOD WORK. BUT ZEC, WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP ON CRITICISING YOU ? [QUESTION MARK NGA]. THIS IS FOOD FOR THOUGHT FOR YOU BOSS PRISCILLA CHIGUMBA.

I AM HAPPY FOR YOU BECAUSE YOU HAVE ALREADY FORWARDED YOUR DRAFT ON ELECTORAL REFORMS TO PARLIAMENT WHICH WILL SOON START DELIBERATIONS ON THEM.

ZEC CHAIRPERSON PRISCILLA CHIGUMBA, I WANT TO BELETANTLY CONGRATULATE YOU ON YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS IN 2018. YOU MANAGED TO BRING TOGETHER POLITICAL PARTIES WHICH HAD BEEN TORN APART BY THE 2017 COUP DE TAT.

IN 2017 YOU WERE STILL NEW IN THE RING. YOU WERE STILL TYING UP THE LOOSE ROPES. THIS TIME MADAM BOSS, YOU NOW KNOW WHICH ROPES TO PULL DOWN AND WHICH ROPES TO PULL UP AND AT WHAT TIME.

MADAM CHAIRPERSON CHIGUMBA, YOUR CELEBRATION PARTY DID NOT END WELL IN 2018 AS YOUR PERFORMANCE ENDED UP BEING QUESTIONED IN THE CONCOURT. THERE WAS AN ALLEGATION OF VOTE RIGGING.

FOREWARNED IS FOREARMED MADAM CHAIRPERSON. ALLEGATIONS OF RIGGING MAY COME STRONGER THAN THE ALLEGATIONS OF 2018. THIS TIME AROUND THEY MAY COME FROM AN UNPRECEDENTED CORNER, [NAME WITHHELD FOR FEAR OF REPRISAL]. TODAY THEY ARE DEBATING ALLEGATIONS OF RIGGING IN THEIR INTERNAL ELECTIONS.

THREE YEARS AGO IT WAS TABOO TO HEAR [PARTY'S NAME WITHHELD] HIGH COMMAND DEBATING ALLEGATIONS OF RIGGING IN THEIR INTERNAL ELECTIONS. I AM AFRAID, MADAM CHAIRWOMAN, THIS PARTY, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ITS HISTORY IS GOING TO ALLEGE RIGGING OF ELECTIONS IN 2023 HARMONISED ELECTIONS.

[ MADAM CHAIRPERSON PRISCILLA CHIGUMBA, NHEMBE IDZO MOTOSUNGA DZISIMBE ADENHA MANGWIRO OTOKWINYA ].

ALL POLITICAL PARTIES ARE SYSTEMS OUT. THEY ARE RARING TO GO.

YOURS SINCERELY
