Opposition Activists Insist Chamisa Won the Popular Vote
Opposition activists and political analysts have expression concern over the possibility of the ruling Zanu PF gaining two thirds majority in parliament, insisting that MDC Alliance candidate Nelson Chamisa won the popular vote ahead of Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Speaking to 263Chat, Dr Victor Chimhutu leader of Zimbabwe Yadzoka, a local democracy pressure group said Zanu PF domination in parliament without the support of the majority spells a bleak future for the country.
“It’s a bleak future, ZANU-PF will remain unsupported by the majority of the people. When the majority of citizens does not have faith and trust in a system, there is no way the country can progress socially or economically. Zimbabwe’s main problem is a confidence crisis & these fictitious election results does not alley such fears,” added Chimhutu.
“It’s a clear attempt by ZEC to subvert the will of the people. Unreasonably inflated figures from so called ZANU-PF strongholds are worrying against the backdrop that in 21% of polling stations mostly in those areas results were not posted as required by the law. These V11 forms are either missing or were burnt. Undesignated polling stations were also unearthed in the process. More worrying is the delay in announcing the popular vote where Chamisa thumped Mnangagwa,” added Chimhutu.
