CSOs demand vote for exiles

Maximum pressure should be exerted upon the governing political party so that it allows Zimbabwean citizens in the diaspora to vote through their respective embassies, said the CSOs at their AGM last weekend. Newly elected chairman of the grouping, Daniel Molokela, said the time had come for Zim

babweans in the diaspora to challenge such dictatorial pieces of legislations.

We have more than three million Zimbabweans living in South Africa, an estimated two million in the United Kingdom and several hundreds of thousands others scattered all over the world. We have to put a stop to such kind of dictatorship, he said.

The Zimbabwe Diaspora CSOs Forum is composed of various apolitical independent civic society organisations, academics, professionals, churches and intellectuals, whose main purpose is to address political, economic and social challenges through a united, apolitical independent forum.

Zimbabwe Torture Victims/Survivors Project official, Soxy Chikohwero, was elected vice chair and Johannesburg businessman Luke Zunga treasurer.

Other elected committee members areProper Ndlovu, Joyce Dube and the Rhodes University academic, Steven Paradza. -CAJ News.
