ZEC Takes Voter Education To Universities, Colleges

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.

I want to commend ZEC for taking voter Education to Colleges and Universities. I hope ZEC IS going to sign an MOU with the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Schools so that voter Education becomes part and parcel of carriculum from lower grades. I wish if ZIMSTART could do the same with the process of CENSUS. It is important because all government processes to do with sharing and allocation of resources to departments, districts and provinces rely on census figures until another census is done.

ZEC has the wrong target group. University students know what they want and how to get it.

They should be more concerned with the rural downtrodden who are easily intimidated and misled
