Diaspora vote

A “unanimous” decision by the parties in government puts aside the voting rights of Zimbabweans in the Diaspora, allegedly over concern that a postal vote could be rigged, according to MDC-T deputy national organising Secretary, Abednico Bhebhe.

While the MDC-T agrees “in principle” that citizens in the Diaspora should be allowed to vote, there are “united liberation movements” in Southern Africa that will do anything to support their counterparts in elections, so “We agreed that the Diaspora should be left out for now,” Bhebhe said

The government has been s criticised since agreeing on the Electoral Amendment Bill in July, as it fails to ensure the

Diaspora vote despite promises by the MDC parties to fight for the rights of their supporters and other Zim citizens outside the country.
