via MDC Youths Stage Protests in Harare, Demand Election Re-run by Thomas Chiripasi 17.08.2013
HARARE — Suspected MDC supporters today staged protests in some Harare high density suburbs expressing dismay over the outcome of the July 31 elections.
The protesters claimed that the polls were rigged by President Robert and his Zanu PF party.
Scores of people suspected to be Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s supporters staged peaceful protests in Harare’s Highfield and Mufakose high density suburbs demanding a re-run of the July 31 national elections.
One of the unidentified demonstrators, who addressed his fellow protestors, said they will not allow President Robert Mugabe to remain in power following the recent presidential election he won with a wide margin.
President Mugabe’s Zanu PF party won with a landslide victory against Mr. Tsvangirai’s Movement for Democratic Change although the prime minister remains adamant that the polls were fundamentally flawed.
The unidentified protester said the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission should release all material used in the July 31 elections to allow Zimbabweans to scrutinize it.
