SADC’s statement on elections flawed
for Democratic Change (MDC-T)
The MDC takes
note of the summary statement
of the SADC Election Observation Mission on the just ended election
that was presented in Harare today.
However, the MDC notes
with grave concern the report’s failure to properly put into
context the enormity and magnitude of the problem presented by the
Zimbabwe Electoral Commission’s failure to avail the voters
roll to candidates on time. The report’s attempt to compare
the extent of bias by the state media with what they refer to as
“pirate radio stations” and or the private media is
It defies any
logic that the report raises quite some disturbing issues with regards
and handling of the just ended election and still continues
to declare the outcome as credible.
The report which is also
silent on many other irregularities such as chaotic voter registration,
shambolic special vote exercise, fake voter slips, bussing of voters,
high number of assisted voters, is in all intends and purpose highly
fictitious, totally inaccurate and incredibly unscientific.
It is clear that the
people’s vote was stolen and SADC has once again let the people
of Zimbabwe down by failing to condemn the rigging which took place.
