I witnessed poll cheating: Aus Amabassador

Australian Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Matthew Neuhaus, has backed MDC-T leader Morga Tsvangirai in rejecting the 2013 election results, saying the polls were seriously compromised.

Tsvangirai has cited a number of irregularities witnessed on the Election Day. He has since indicated that they are in the process of compiling a dossier pointing out all their irregularities which they want to hand over to SADC and the African Union.

In an interview at the weekend in Harare, Neuhaus said he personally witnessed people being bussed in to vote in areas where they were not registered.

“I saw a lot of things that got me to question the credibility of the election .I saw a lot of people being turned away. I saw people coming with voting slips and some were aided by the presiding officer to vote because that provision was there and I saw others being denied the same chance. I saw in Epworth people who had been clearly brought from other areas and for some strange reasons they were being allowed to vote, “said Neuhaus.

The same irregularities have been highlighted by the SADC Parliamentary Forum which is currently divided over the writing of their observation report.

The regional observer group said the number of assisted voters in Midlands’s Gokwe area in particular was “shocking”.

Surprisingly the South African President Jacob Zuma, who is the regional body’s pointman to Zimbabwe has endorsed President Robert Mugabe’s victory.
