Maize deliveries ahead of elections

maizeOfficials have also opened a register at all the polling stations to take note of all the individuals who will visit the stations to cast their vote. It's alleged these are the only people who will be allowed to buy the maize on Sunday, a day after the senate elections. The maize consignment, from t

he local GMB was delivered right inside the perimeters of all the eight polling stations in each ward. MDC spokesman for Chipinge North Godfrey Nyarota said they last had maize deliveries in the town in March, a week before the parliamentary elections. The MDC is not fielding any candidate there because it has boycotted the poll. Only Zanu (PF) and Zanu Ndonga have candidates vying for the senatorial seat. People in the town have struggled for months to buy maize anyway in the area because all the grain was either bought or confiscated by the GMB, which has a monopoly on maize distribution in the district. Nayrota said without maize people have been starving, while all along Zanu (PF) has been holding on to the scarce commodity. We were all surprised when we saw truckloads of maize being delivered to all the polling stations. This is a direct case of vote buying, said Nyarota.  SW Radio Africa
