The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has signed Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) with various colleges and universities to provide them with content for voter education.
This was revealed by the outgoing ZEC spokesperson Joyce Kazembe while speaking in Chinhoyi this week during a training workshop on electoral processes for journalists from the Zimpapers Group.
Kazembe said the curriculum for higher learning institutions is meant to ensure voter education is learnt from a young age. She said:
ZEC has signed a number of documents and policies that will see voter education being part of the curriculum in colleges and universities.
This seeks to ensure that the voting process is understood from an early stage and society understands the process.
ZEC chairperson Priscilla Chigumba recently announced the appointment of Jasper Mangwana as the new ZEC spokesperson to take over from Kazembe.
