Opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) leader, Nelson Chamisa, took to social media to emphasize the crucial need for citizens to inspect and confirm their names on the voters’ roll ahead of the upcoming elections.
In a tweet, Chamisa emphasized the significance of voter inspection as the final step before casting one’s ballot, stressing the opposition’s commitment to preventing any form of tampering with the electoral process.
“FELLOW CITIZENS, Voter inspection is the last stage before voting. It is very important to ensure that your name is on the voters’ list. We will not allow any tampering with the voters’ roll. Have you checked if your name is appearing on the voters’ roll?” Chamisa tweeted
With the hashtag #ThisTime, the opposition leader rallied Zimbabweans to take immediate action and verify their presence on the voters’ roll.
The Zimbabwe Election Commission (ZEC) is conducting a voters roll inspection exercise which began on Saturday and is expected to end on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, there has been an outcry mainly from senior Citizens Coalition for Change members who claimed their names were not appearing in the voters roll.
Among them are Professor Welshman Ncube, legislators Nicola Watson, Jasmine Toffa and Senator David Coltart.
CCC national spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere said the party was compiling all the anomalies regarding the voters’ roll.
“Our Elections Dept is compiling a record of all anomalies reported regarding the voters’ roll inspection process. Everyone must inspect the roll so that we have an accurate picture of the extent of any errors or omissions. We demand a credible roll before the election!” said Mahere
President Emmerson Mnangagwa is today expected to announce dates for the elections setting the stage for an interesting battle against Chamisa.
