Zec rubbishes Prof Moyo claims
The provisional voters’ roll had been established following the BVR exercise that was carried out since August last year.
Prof Moyo made a number of allegations that included use of Chinese military experts to manipulate the voters’ roll and creation of new polling stations to accommodate ghost voters,
In the statement yesterday, Zec denied that it had already availed a physical copy of the voters’ roll to Zanu-PF.
“That is false and mischievous (that Zec has availed the voters’ roll to Zanu PF),” said the electoral body.
“The voters’ roll will be furnished to all political parties and candidates once the commission avails it in line with the provisions of the (Electoral) Act.
“At the moment, we are doing a second round of de-duplication using AFIS after we had registrants during the inspection of the BVR, we expect to be finished very soon.”
The elections management body also denied that there were Chinese experts that had been seconded to work with them.
“That is false, we do not have any Chinese nationals working with Zec in any capacity,” said Zec. “The allegations are purely malicious.” Zec denied allegations that they were going
to create new polling stations and described the accusations also as malicious.
“These are purely malicious allegations and meant to cause alarm and despondency and are not even worthy to respond to,” said Zec.
“We have explained that we are not setting up new polling stations. We are creating subpolling stations within the traditional polling stations.”
The sub-polling stations are meant to deal with areas where the voters’ threshold in a particular polling area exceeds the set limit.
Meanwhile, Zec has also established 10 accreditation centres for observers across the country’s 10 provinces as part of measures to de-centralise the process.
