Mugabe, Mudede plot 2010 strategy (08-02-07)

No ink at RG's office
HARARE - President Robert Mugabe and the Registrar General Tobaiwa Mudede, held a secret meeting this week to plot how they will frustrate any efforts to hold presidential elections next year, as mandated by the constitution.
Despite the fact that his own party has not fi

nally agreed to the postponement of the elections to 2010, Mugabe seems determined to have his way.
Confidential information made available to The Zimbabwean this week shows that he and Mudede have agreed to scuttle any efforts to force them to hold the elections next year by claiming that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission could not meet the deadline.
“The RG’s office and ZEC have already taken the position that they will not be ready to organize and run the elections next year following meetings held with Mugabe,” said a source privy to the deliberations said.
The plot includes the previously used tactic – “massive migration trends across the country” – to force a time-consuming delimitation process before the elections.
In addition, the RG’s office has no ink and other vital things required for the issuing of national documents.
The RG was said to be out of the office since last week and his deputy said she couldn’t speak on the matter. – Own correspondent
