Open letter to SA president Jacob Zuma

Dear President Zuma


You, the guarantor of our GPA, the AU and SADC have asked the Zimbabwean people to accept an election that is the biggest fraud in our history. I find it painful, also, that you found it fit to quench your own voice of truth in Madam Zulu.

You know very well the 2008 election was stolen, as was 2002 and most certainly 2013. If you want evidence, hundreds of thousands of us will give it to you – if not millions. I am only one of many and millions are far worse off than me. I fortunately kept my voters receipt from 2000 and have been forced to use that to vote every election as my name continuously disappears of the voter roll. We know that there is more than one voters roll and our voters roll is an absolute disgrace which Zanu (PF) has refused to sort out in a fair and open manner.

I have read the history of South Africa and I am heartbreakingly aware of the terrible atrocities that the apartheid government perpetrated on the people of South Africa. So you of all people should know better. And you ask the MDC to accede defeat? Never! Accede to a lie! Never! We feel that SADC, the AU and sadly, even yourself, are sacrificing the people of Zimbabwe on the altar of a terrible travesty of justice and to suit your purposes. And to prolong the life of a regime very few want.

We demand a totally new and transparent voters’ roll, new elections and for SADC and yourself to stand by your word and get the even playing fields you all promised the people of Zimbabwe. Every day I see the suffering of millions of Zimbabweans at the hands of Africa’s leaders who fail us so badly. We do not want revenge; we do not want retribution. All we want is a fair and free vote. – Name supplied to President Zuma, Harare
