Multiple voting scam exposed

The MDC-T has started investigations into reports that bussed-in Zanu (PF) supporters engaged in multiple voting in last week’s elections.

Zanu (PF) managed to bag 25 out of the 28 parliamentary seats contested for in the Midlands. There is growing concern that the figures do not reflect the will of the people.

Jameson Tsuro, the MDC-T spokesperson for the province, said preliminary post-election scrutiny of the roll shows that the majority of voters used ZEC’s voter registration certificates to vote several times in different wards. Prior to the elections, ZEC announced that people who could not find their names on the voters’ roll were free to vote upon production of voter registration certificates. “I do not know where the multitudes of people who are said to have voted came from. At some polling stations, they outnumbered the people who voted with names on the roll,” said Tsuro. “We believe this is one of the ways Zanu (PF) rigged the elections. What is clear is that those people were bussed in by their party because the numbers indicate they do not live in the constituencies.

Tsuro also confirmed that reports had reached him that some bussed-in Zanu (PF) supporters in Midlands South used a liquid that dissolved ZEC’s red ink from their fingers in order to vote more than once.

“We are looking into all of these dirty tactics. In accordance with what was said by the party president Morgan Tsvangirai, we have evidence of how Zanu (PF) rigged the elections. That is the basis we will use to call for fresh elections,” said Tsuro.
