Tsvangirai raises rigging alarm

MDC-T leader Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai yesterday told top officials of the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) that his party had unearthed a massive scam where Zanu PF allegedly plotted to rig the forthcoming harmonised elections using State security agents and a hired Israeli intelligence organisation.

REPORT BY JOHN NYASHANU

Tsvangirai also alleged that Section 56 (1) of the Electoral Amendment Act which prohibited double voting had been clandestinely deleted, a move he described as highly suspicious.

Briefing journalists after meeting Zec chairperson Justice Rita Makarau at his Charter House offices in Harare, Tsvangirai through his spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka said Zanu PF planned to register over 50 000 police officers as special voters to allow them to cast their ballot before the election date.

According to the electoral laws, police officers on duty on the polling dates were allowed to vote in advance to allow them to provide security during
the elections.

“The co-Minister of Home Affairs (Theresa Makone), who was present in the meeting raised this concern, saying as far as she was concerned, Zimbabwe only has some 38 000 police officers. Where then would the other 12 000 or so come from? It all points to attempts to rig, which is why everything is appearing unclear to the PM,” he said.

Contacted for comment, national police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba said: “The Zimbabwe Republic Police has registered 50 000 police officers as Special Voters since they will be deployed in various polling stations away from their work stations. This is according to Section 81 of the Electoral Act, Chapter 2:13 which states that:“A registered Voter shall be entitled to cast a Special Vote in terms of Part X1VA before the polling day or on the first polling day in an election if he or she will be unable to vote at a Polling Station in his or her Constituency because he or she;
a) Is or will be an Electoral Officer.

b) Is a member of a disciplined force who will be performing security duties during the election.

“There is, therefore, nothing unusual and sinister in deploying that figure since we have always been doing that in other duties where we do not have enough
manpower.”

Asked to explain the discrepancy between her 50 000 figure and the 38 000 provided by the police minister, Charamba said the “ZRP regular members would be augmented by police constabulary members who, according to the Police Act Chapter 27 (3) states that police constabulary members may be employed to assist regular members of the force on any occasion.”

Asked to comment on allegations of tampering with the Electoral Amendment Act, Zanu PF co-chairperson of the now disbanded Copac, Munyaradzi Paul Mangwana distanced himself from the matter and referred NewsDay to Justice minister Patrick Chinamasa.

“If it’s anything to do with the electoral amendments, Minister Chinamasa would be the right person to talk to,” Mangwana said.
Chinamasa could not be reached for comment.

The Premier also took aim at the Israeli intelligence organisation, which he alleged was operating in Zimbabwe with local electoral bodies, to influence the outcome of elections.

“These people have a bad track record and were involved in some countries in Africa in tampering with the voters’ roll and we are worried that they could be tempering with our voters’ roll. As a country, it would be bad for our voters roll to be associated with such people,” he said.

      The PM through the Home Affairs dept should know the exact number of all police members through the pay roll. If there is a difference of 12 000 we as tax payers demand to know who they are.

      • Mambo Wasu July 2, 2013 at 3:11 pm #

        I feel PM should really take a hard stance on ZANU PF regarding this Israeil intelligence group. We have to avoid a repeat of 2008 where results were disputed. I can sense a third GNU on the horizon if MDC plays weak at ZANU.

        Why is it that the MDC-T is always crying and shedding tears? Is he always on the receiving end really or he is now conditioned to crying and complaining. Who can be friendly to Israel between ZANU-PF and MDC-T. We also have the other MDC which will be contesting but they do not make such frequent cries like a hired cry baby.

    My Vote Counts is quite right, the process of special voting must be explained and if it is supervised by both ZEC and all parties involved to make sure there is secrecy in the voting, it is fine with everybody.
    ZEC should make sure that all parties get unsolicited votes from these armed force members.
    If ZEC fails to do that it will have failed the whole nation.

    Even the 2008 elections told us that the illegal regime agenda is very much alive and we the patriotic people of the country shall stand firm in defending our sovereignty. Even if the real Zimbabweans loose the 2013 election, it shall be deemed illegal by our Concourt of which no one else is allowed to overrule. As soon as the majority of people vote against the real patriotic Zimbabweans 1 of our own namely Taruzirei Nyika will file an urgent application with the concourt against the result as it will infringe on his democratic right against illegal regime change. No matter how many people will vote for stoogies of the west and by whatever percentage the stoogies win, it still will be deemed illegal by our concourt as illegal regime change is not allowed. However for people of Zimbabwe not to be caught on the wrong side of the law they should vote overwhelmingly for the super patriots who know what is the best for the country. As an example how do you expect a country as sanctioned as ours to have a proper transparent diamond trade. How do you expect the same country to remit diamond revenue to government when in the same government we have illegal regime change agents. We shall never ever allow illegal regime change even through the ballot. These western countries are very clever now they want to effect regime change through free and fair elections. Hee reform this hee reform that. They are silently donating radios to our wise rural folk whilst back at the ranch they are busy clamouring for a free and fair elections. How can the election be fair when some people have radios whilst others do not have radios, what is fair about that. Surely we will not allow a free and fair election so that the westerners can impose their illegal regime change, no never. Now we the super patriots of Zimbabwe understand it when Smith was saying never in a thousand years, we understand that we have ungrateful black Rhodies who do not appreciate all we do for them. Never in a thousand years will we allow someone who does not understand the goings on at the Pentagon and Washington to effect illegal regime change through the so called free and fair election. Never ever.

    Is Charity telling us that all 50000 police officers will be deployed saka mbavja dzichapembereraka, kana mumigwagwa umu tombofamba free heduka. But Charity do you really have 50000 police officers and if yes what for? This number is just too big for a small country like Zimbabwe. Walk in the streets of our townships you don’t meet a police officer except those going to their lodgings, most of them are being abused anyway and are lodgers and if they vote stupidly they will die lodgers. Now my brief to all those 50000 police officers are going to vote freely and if so its time you look at the future of your children kwete kutya kuti unodzingwa basa iro rinokuita vendor everyday wapedza basa kana kukuita unpopular nevanhu vainotorera ma bribe kuti urarame, Vana Charity ava varikufamba ne ma BMW iwe uchirova bhutsu wakananga kuka wooden cabinet kako ku Warren Park uko kana kuti ku Epworth. Ramba kushandiswa zvino.

    The opposition is a joke. By splitting their vote they have given Mugabe and ZANU[PF] an upper hand.

    Mugabe ari kutonga magents. Kutonga includes overseeing an electoral process in which you are an interested party. The nature of his job allows him to be briefed about all the nitty-gritties dzema elections.

    Though parliament dissolved, VaMugabe is still Head of State and ‘Government’, and Commander-in-Chief of de Armed Forces.

    Our law does not make him redundant. His key weapon is INFORMATION !

    A soccer coach does not disclose his game plan to an opposing team. The same principle applies in politics, period !

    Although i agree with you Mandla that the lady minister is not fit for that job only zrp police are reguarded as police man and as such they donot amount to 50 000 and even so not all of them wiil be deployed especially with transport problems the zrp police has how are they going to move them arround . This issue must be solved very fast before zany capilises on this anormally.

    South Africa Mzansi has every right to lecture Zimbabwe on democracy. They are on the receiving end of Zimbabweans’ illegal immigration.

    If your messing up in your home does not affect me as a neighbour, I will leave you alone. But the moment the mess you are creating in your home starts affecting me, I have everyright to interfer

    An organisation from America’s number one ally is aiding a government under American sanctions to win an election against an American puppet through rigging, so alleges the idiot!

    Israelis are conspiring to help ‘Iran friendly communist dictators’ to defeat a ‘capitalist American friendly democracy’ to what end?

  63. scott July 2, 2013 at 6:40 pm #

    Again, the idiot makes a spectacularly claim of yet another conspiracy against him without providing any evidence? Kwanai!

    ZANU PF MASVINGO NORTH ELECTION RIGGED

    Evidence awash shows that the primary election in Masvingo North was marred by outright irregularities. A candidate, Davis Marapira who had lost outrightly, trailing behind two candidates,Thomas Ziki and Mudukuti, was announced as a winner. This was because Marapira was Mavhaire’s bootlicker.

    Correct results that arrived at the Provincial Directorate were as follows:
    1. THOMAS ZIKI – 3063
    2. MUDUKUTI – 2618
    3. MARAPIRA – 1571
    4. CHADEMANA – 1216

    Come to think of it. Such rigging amongst themselves. The cock shall come home to roost.

    Food for thought.

    so each and every one of the police officers asked to vote in advance?
    where are these applications kept?
    can we positively identify each and every one of these officers and their station of work?
    does the pay roll show 50000 people?

  79. Tichatonga July 3, 2013 at 12:52 am #

Too much ado about nothing yet silentlt resigned to that fact that despite his election appeal the guy is developed jelly feet and how is he going to sustain the lifestyle, another new baby, former white farmers after your life, 1316/1315, ex girlfriends etc. It never rains for sure.

    What this means is that no member of the uniformed pollice is going to be expected to stand in a queue on 31 july 2013.
    And we should report such if we see them in a queue.
