Introduction

The national harmonised elections held by Zimbabwe on July 31, 2013 were massively rigged by a network of groups and organisations hired by the Zanu PF system for the sole purpose of fraudulently denying Zimbabweans their constitutionally guaranteed right to vote and express their free will and also give Zanu PF and its leader, Robert Mugabe an illegitimate victory.

Through confidential links with the structures and organisations that were involved in the rigging mission, details of the whole plan and how it was executed were obtained.

Further, investigations spread across the national political and electoral framework helped in the establishment of facts, details and all the necessary information used in compiling this report.

The rigging machinery started seriously preparing for the mission as early as February 2013, with some of the strategies having been rolled out since 2012 under a very thick veil of secrecy and with the Zanu PF system abusing its control and manipulation of key state institutions as well as departments.

A total amount of US$100 million was used for the rigging mission, which involved a monolith system and structure comprising largely secretive and shadowy organisations as well as individuals.

This report outlines, analyses and assesses the whole mechanism that was used to rig the polls, clearly identifying the players that were involved, the strategies and dirty tactics they employed as well as showing how they influenced the results which were announced by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC).

Local organisations, individuals and structures within the state’s security sector were at the epicentre of the rigging machinery and under the command of military and intelligence senior personnel, which supervised and directed the network and processes. Vast technical expertise and support was also incorporated and provided by foreign individuals and organisations.

A firm run and operated by Mossad, the Israeli spy agency, Nikuv Projects played a major role in the manipulation and corruption of the processes of voter registration and compilation of a shambolic voters’ roll, which were primarily the initial phases for the rigging processes.

This report outlines the role played by Nikuv Projects and how it literally took over the management of the voters’ roll from the Registrar General. It further reveals the clandestine existence and operating relationship between the group and the Zanu PF system, including secretive payments of huge amounts of funds for the work it carried out.

The Zanu PF system also hired experts from China that played a major role in the training and orientation of militia and Zanu PF structures that were used to carry out specific tasks and worked under the command of the military and intelligence.

These tasks included ballot stuffing, creation of fake IDs and fake voter registration slips as well as spearheading multiple voting.

The Chinese experts were also instrumental in thedevelopment and use of a special water marked ballot paper, which was designed to give all the votes cast on it to Zanu PF candidates through sophisticated paper technology.

Secret command centres were operated by the rigging machinery across the whole country, at military bases, Zanu PF premises and also at farms, which hosted militia and activists that were trained and deployed to carry out the mission.

The secret bases were also used to stock material such as ballot paper, fake IDs, fake registration slips and also for tasks of ballot stuffing. This report provides a breakdown of the major secret bases that were used by the rigging machinery.

It shall also be revealed and outlined in this report that the rigging mission was carried out at provincial level and with specific strategies and mechanisms being used for each province, varyingly and determined by specific objectives that the Zanu PF system had for each of the country’s provinces.

The architects of the rigging mission initially identified political dynamics, voting patterns and also the distribution of seats in previous elections to come up with specific targets and objectives for each and every province. They, for example, identified provinces which they resolved to go all out and make clean sweep of the parliamentary seats and that meant employing specific strategies to achieve that.

Subsequently, it shall be noted and explained in this report that due to the varying targets and objectives as well as strategies from one province to another, the rigging plans ended up being sophisticated and complicated.

To manage that situation, the Zanu PF system ensured that it deployed key intelligence and military operatives at each and every level and stage of the system and processes, who effectively wielded the most power and operated the programmes, reducing proper channels and officials to being bystanders and rubber stampers.

Over the years Mugabe’s regime has deployed serving and retired soldiers into non-military structures, to ensure Mugabe remains in power.

Local organisations, individuals and structures within the state’s security sector were at the epicentre of the rigging machinery and under the command of military and intelligence senior personnel, which supervised and directed the network and processes.

Retired intelligence and military personnel were summoned and deployed across the country to supervise and direct the rigging plans and programmes, as a way of boosting the numbers of those currently still in the service.

That factor also meant the need for huge funding and a wider resource base, which the Zanu PF system alone could not cater for and that brings in further involvement of external players who provided funding. Among them were leaders and organisations from within the African, who knowingly abetted the rigging mission through providing funding.

Presidents of Equatorial Guinea and the DRC personally provided funding for the rigging machinery. The Zanu PF system exploited its corrupt stranglehold on the Marange diamonds to fix illegal deals that helped it raise funds for the rigging mission.

This report provides all the details and information about the individuals, organisations and entities that were involved, as well the budget, funding and the rigging strategies and methodologies.

It also provides deeper analysis and assessment of the rigging processes to provide a clearer understanding of how they contributed to the cocktail of outcomes, including disenfranchising many voters, creating millions of ghost voters and how that was manipulated to inflate voting numbers, carry out ballot stuffing as well as even turning votes cast for the MDC candidates into reflecting for Zanu PF candidates.

    It is true ,because what is it that people in Mt Pleasent got from Zanu that turned thinking and believing in MDC.This was just too much even people from other countries could not believe.some councellors who won were also surprised by their victory.Lets see how they govern it,time will expose your rigging

    • comment-avatar

      Mt Pleasant was raised during the election and from the inside information I got there is no smoking gun.A team of observer including Obasanjo went to the AG to investigate this issue true the records.The results did not support MDC.eg 42 names on the same address and same DOB one person actually voted.PPle in the bus ZANU said they were police recruits from Morris deport. How do u counter that, on camera they didn’t say anything.And Zanu will say police recruits are not allowed to say anything on TV.Produce something not general talk.Why are u saying some did not believe they won.Be serious

        Bob, if that is the case, why is the electronic voters roll being withheld even 3 months after the election? Why is Makarau fighting tooth and nail to stop the opening of the Mt. Pleasant ballots?

    Iam not sure this dossier will help us, it looks like its going to embrarrass again. So far it lacks the substance it sounds like a story from a Nigerian novel. Sometimes I wonder if MDC knows what is evidence or we simply don’t have it. Special pens and water marks those are good for beer hall talk but at the intellectual level that sounds stupid unless if you have evidence I know we don’t have.If one says ZANU had a rigging machine how is that evidence to me that is here say.This party sucks

    Silly, silly, silly !!!! Stupid, stupid, stupid. Did someone finish reading this hogwash?? I stopped on the fifth sentence!!!! Can those who continued enlighten us please?? I have never seen such nonsense in my life. The MDC and all the NGOs and all the angry white losers can write as many dossiers as they like. We will, of course continue to rule. Whites can go hang and we will continue to enjoy the land. Former white farmers can enjoy living in tiny flats and we will enjoy the vast and expansive land they used to occupy illegally, I might add. They should be angry until they burst of anger and we will lavish in joy, happiness and unbelievable feeling of victory, victory of good over evil, victory of justice over colonialism, victory of the African over imperialism and above all, victory of everlasting reclamation of what is ours, what was once stollen from us.

      Lizi Nkala, civilised people do not resort to insults. They simply present their facts and let other participants to the debate to respond. It is this primitive intolerance of different views that led Zimbabwe to becoming a basket case because the ruling class does not tolerate criticism.

      You have no facts and bullying other commentators will not help you. The article is discussing the rigging of an election. Where do white people and the land issue come in. Indeed we took the land. Why not produce food and stop buying maize grown by the very people we drove off the land?

      You need to grow up Lizi.

      @ Lizi

      Your comment stink just like your father at the State House. You are so pathetic when you say ‘We are Ruling’. Are you Mugabe? Are you Mai Mujuru? Are you Chiwenga? Then who are you ruloing or you are being ruled by people who will use you and dump you the moment you stop being useful, ask Masimbarembwa!!! People like you are the ones who make our country poor and poorer each day…zvimarombe zvinongopihwa zvimari zvelauzani votovhotera zanu. Ask Chinamasa…he has no clue where he will get the money for the budget muchingotonga!

    Dear Lizi,
    We are called to love each other as brethren by the Lord Jesus Christ. The Book of Acts tells us that we all come from the same blood and so in God there is no colour race or tribe. Your reply is sad because of your obvious delight at the suffering of others. This nation desperately needs healing and forgiveness. And without repentance restoration can never take place. If there was victory of good over evil in Zimbabwe we would be seeing God’s blessings: we are not. We are a suffering, starving and impoverished nation. This is a sign of judgment. God’s thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are not our ways; His ways are higher than our ways. Someone once said that if a man choose a road to revenge he must dig two graves. The whole issue of land needed to be resolved but was done in a way that destroyed this nation. lets begin to fix this before God with forgiveness and tolerance for one another. “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free” That’s for all of us

    Cowardice, cowardice, NBS. I am Lizi Nkala, open, pure and simple yet you choose to hide behind the letters NBS-whatever that means. Those of us who got back our land should be delighted, and so too, should those from whom the land was taken because in the end all of us should take delight at justice finally served. Zimbabweans are suffering today because of the SANCTIONS that were brought upon us by the West at the scornful instigation of those who lost land!!!! Where was their forgiveness, those that called for sanctions??? Oh, yes, the same old story- Africans should forgive the sins of whitemen’s injustice, but never the other way round!!!! When Africans seek justice, it is revenge-what nonsensical thinking?? There is no sin whatsoever in seeking and obtaining justice. Sometimes no one gives you justice – YOU TAKE IT!!!!!!!! THAT IS WHAT WE DID1111

      The liar’s punishment is, not in the least that he is not believed, but that he cannot believe anyone else.Everyday people, they lie to God too,So what makes you think, that they won’t lie to you.ou are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

      Lizi, Zimbabwe is suffering today because those of you who have the land are not producing food and other crops that the previous farm occupants did.

      By 1997 Zimbabwe had stopped paying its debts to the Bretonwoods Institutions. So, our failure to access credit lines had nothing to do with sanctions but rather had everything to do with our dismal failure to service our debts. Besides, we adopted a look East police and the Chinese do lend money to other countries including the USA. Why do we continue to look to the West for lines of credit?

      @ Lizi

      SANCTIONS my foot. What car did the Ministers get this month, where are they made? Which country is Zimbabweas 3rd biggest trading partner? Isn’t it the USA, and you dare talk of sanctions. Take your time and go over ZIDERA, it lists individuals and companies and if you scrutinise those companies they are benefiting th same individuals who are on the list of those targeted. Don’t say you can’t buy using paypal because maggots like you will be used as front for your daddy Mugabe who is demolishing houses of poor people after using them to vote for him. Vhauri kuwawata izvi enda nazvo kusikombela uko!!!

    Let us all call upon the Lord, He alone will heal our land. Whatever happened on the elections rigged or not rigged it is all in the hands of the Lord,because he alone is the Judge. Lets start to love one other and work for our nation, if ever there was anything done in secret, God alone is the revealer of secrets.

    MDC-T once again foolishly put their faith in the official route, by submitting this dossier to SADC, AU and South Africa they believe they may wheedle out a modicum of honor amongst disreputable and dishonest African leaders. That’s just never gonna happen.

    If MDC-T wants to use this dossier to enlighten people to the criminal activities of Mugabe/Zanu and expose this fraudulence and illegitimate government, then they should put this dossier and all supporting evidence documents in the public domain.

    By this I mean, the street should be littered with copies of the dossier, poster hung on every tree, plaster on every building. This dossier should be trending on twitter, should be published on Face Book. Copies should be handed to all heads of state throughout the world. Public disobedience and demonstration should be taking place in Zimbabwe cities, towns and villages demanding that the will of the people be upheld, demanding fresh election monitored by none biased global human rights groups.

    If Mugabe and ZANU-PF sincerely believe they won the last election fair and square, then this proposal should not bother them because the people will decide if they want Zanu to govern.

      Munzwa, the Europeans should and are going to move first, stupid!!!!! Africans who live in Europe do not clamour to rule and control Europeans. By the same token why should Europeans who live in Africa seek to rule and control African and its their resources?
