The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has assured citizens and the greater international community that by August 4, they will know who the new president of Zimbabwe is.
This comes after much uncertainty around the exact date on which the election results will be announced.
However, ZEC Commissioner Qhubani Moyo has told SABC News that he does not foresee anything that could hinder them from officially announcing the result on or before August 4.
“We are supposed to announce the presidential results within five days after the elections, and certainly we will deliver that. By the 4th August, Zimbabweans and the world would know from the Commission who is the president of Zimbabwe. We are very confident that we have put systems in place for the transmission of the results, such that we will be able to announce by the 4th, it could actually be earlier than the 4th.”
Meanwhile, Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) Alliance Leader, Nelson Chamisa has expressed disappointment at a lack of what he says should be a proactive approach by Southern African Development Community (SADC) ahead of Monday’s general election.
He says he has written a letter to the SADC Chairperson, President Cyril Ramaphosa, and the Troika about some of his concerns about disputes with the ZEC.
Chamisa has visited Bidura in Mashonaland central province, strong hold of the rulling Zanu-PF, where he addressed thousands of supporters.
