SEEING IS BELIEVING
We need to stand together behind a simple call: we want to see all the voters rolls that were used for the Zimbabwe Election 2013 in their proper, searchable, analysable, electronic form, and we want to see all the sealed records of who voted, where they voted, who helped whom, and who got turned away. We deserve this – at the very least.
In addition we want to see the 2012 census and citizenship records for comparison.
For as long as the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission refuses to make this information available, we are forced to believe that they have something to hide. If they have nothing to hide, why do they consistently refuse to be transparent about this?
Even anyone who believes, or wants to believe, in President Robert Mugabe’s incredible victory must agree:
All the records about the 2013 election must be unsealed and seen - NOW.
No more waiting years like before.
As for ZEC’s unending pretence for not providing analysable e-rolls on demand as the law requires – its claims that while it can print and search them, it can make no electronic copy of its own records! This is patently ridiculous and it’s time for us all to stand up and say “poppycock, My Lady” to ZEC’s Chairperson, Judge Rita Makarau.
If you like you can email her to say that [or What a whopper, my lady!!
or another preferred alternative] on email@example.com and/or her deputy Joyce Kazembe at firstname.lastname@example.org
