    Zengeza 2 - Civil society organizations held the FeyaFeya campaign road show at Zengeza 2 shopping centre on Saturday the 6th of July 2013.

    The FeyaFeya campaign is an initiative of civil society organizations which aims at promoting free and fair elections during the harmonized polls scheduled for the 31st of July 2013.

    The campaign also aimed at encouraging citizens of Chitungwiza to register as voters before the 9th of July which is the closing day of voter registration for those who will take part in the July 31 poll.

    The campaign urged Chitungwiza residents to participate in the elections in a peaceful manner to promote free and fairs elections, and also urged the government to implement necessary reforms that promote free and fair elections.

    “The campaign aims to urge the people of Zengeza and Chitungwiza to register before the 9th of July, shun all forms of political violence and urge the country’s leadership to implement reforms that are necessary for free and fair elections,” said one of the campaign organizers Mr Nixon Nyikadzino, the programs manager at Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition.

    Civil society organizations and other political parties are agitating for reforms that include opening the air waves to all political parties, stopping the military from intimidating the electorate in communities and also military leaders must not make statements that undermine democracy.
