THAT'S A CHURCH SHRINE : CHIGUMBA RUBBISHES MDC CLAIMS

ZEC boss, Justice Chigumba has rubbished MDC Alliance claims that over 400 people on the biometric voters’ register shared the same residential address in Chitungwiza.

“The stand number 100086 Unit G, Chitungwiza, alluded to by some press reports is in fact a church shrine with 122 voters, which is contrary to some press reports that it has 400 voters,” she said.

“We urge all stakeholders to report responsibly and conduct themselves in a manner that promotes peace and tranquillity in the electoral process. We urge all stakeholders to verify their information before going public.

“After all, the right to reply is a tenet of responsible reporting. It should be noted that through the use of affidavits, a residential address can have many registered voters, ”she said in a statement.

On the printing of ballots she said ZEC had invited all parties in the interest of transparency
: "“However, the commission noted with concern demands by some political parties to get very close to the printing machines which are located in an area with high security documents belonging to other clients. The commission views such demands as an abuse of the right to transparency.”
