Maputo shames Zanu-PF

via Bulawayo24 NEWS | Maputo shames Zanu-PF 09 October 2014

President Mugabe ruling Zanu-PF should draw lessons from Mozambique which has extended voting rights to its citizens in the diaspora.

Mozambique goes to the polls on Sunday and had four polling stations in Zimbabwe for its citizens.

Zimbabwe is still adamant that its citizens in the Diaspora cannot vote even if section 67 (3) (a) of the Electoral Act guarantees citizens over the age of 18 to vote in all elections and referendums.

    Hope Maputo has put enough efforts to safe guard the ballot boxes because they will end up with Zanu MP’s in the Mozambique parliament. Probably another landslide! Shiri ine muriro wayo——

    At least all parties in Mozambique can travel all over the world to campaing in the diaspora. Our situation is different. Only the MDC can travel to the diaspora to campaign whilst Zanu Pf is banned because of the illegal sanctions. Who would be stupid enough to allow the MDC to collect an uncontested vote in the diaspora? As soon as sanctions are removed then we can consider giving the vote to those in the diaspora. Besides, those in the diaspora can always travel home to vote.

    The Zimbabwean population in the diaspora should have the right to vote for the part of their choice so it ideal for polling stations to be established in parts of the world where they are. However, the unfortunate part of everything is that one of the parties in Zimbabwe is under sanctions so some of the people will be unable to freely campaign and vote for their part. This has the effect of defeating the whole accence of democracy that Zimbabwe are yenning for. It is my opinion that if the playground is leveled the Zimbabwean government will do exactly what the Mozambican government did to facilitate voting by diaspora. Many people abroad and overseas have made the wholesale mistake of thinking that every Zimbabwean in the diaspora belongs to the parties that are not on the sanction list.

    Oh boy “the future” – it’s good old sanctions once more. Blame it on sanctions…..blame what? EVERYTHING! Except of course good old Smithy and company who managed to turn their sanctions into an opportunity – from which ZANU inherited the most diversified manufacturing economy in Africa by 1980……mmmmmm??? Waste of time voting in Zimbabwe anyway…diaspora or not. We have NIKUV remember.
