Party spokesperson Kurauone Chihwayi said the campaign — which is being carried out by party members from all the structures — has so far covered areas such as Makokoba, Pumula, Luveve  suburbs and the city centre.

Chihwayi said they had to adopt a hash tag so as to motivate their target audience.

“The essence of the hash tag being that people should refuse to be intimidated and must fight for their right to vote with all that they have as it is the only weapon that can fight against all the ills created by Zanu PF,” he said.

He also said the registration campaign has been on-going countrywide since the beginning of 2017 but they saw the need to intensify it now as time was fast running out before the next elections.

“This campaign includes door-to-door visits, public meetings and engagement with various stakeholders in the communities.

“The campaign will continue right up to the time Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) announces the voter registration cut off dates.”

Chihwayi said the campaign is part of the broader MDC mission to ensure that citizens are “kept informed and educated about the voter registration process, in particular about how biometric voter registration works and also to advise them to be on the alert for rigging tricks by Zanu PF.”

The MDC spokesperson said their major goal was to ensure that come voting day, citizens of voting age are empowered with the power to make the right decisions.

“All we are simply saying is if you do not register to vote, you will have to endure Zanu PF for another five years, because that is what they are counting on.” Daily News

    “All we are simply saying is if you do not register to vote, you will have to endure Zanu PF for another five years, because that is what they are counting on,” said Chihwayi, MDC-Ncube spokesperson.

    This is just nonsense. In 2013 nearly one million voters were denied the vote by the simple act of posting their details in the constituency voters roll other than the one the individual expected. The same corrupt ZEC is still in place to perform more dirty tricks and with the help of the NIKUV Israelis; there is simple no limit to the mischief that can be done here. All the hundreds of man-days spend in door-to-door campaigns and queuing to register can all be undone by the click of a computer mouse-button.

    In 2013 the regime refused to release the voters roll although it is a legal requirement because the authorities knew it was the smoking gun in its vote rigging operations.

    It is not voter registration we want but reform of ZEC and all the other State Institution to stop the deliberate vote rigging. It is sheer madness to expect Zanu PF to rig the vote and lose the elections!

    Welshman Ncube knows Zanu PF will rig and will the elections and all he and his opposition friends are going for is the few seats the regime gives away, the bribe to keep the opposition in the contest and give the process legitimacy. The opposition are selling out on free and fair elections just as they sold out on the same point during the GNU. It is for the people themselves to see through the opposition’s smoke-screen if they are ever to have free and fair elections and a competent government!

  • Good move Ncube #valangebhetshu let the whole country support the coalition. Asifunibumbulu

    This is just a gimmick, this will not stop the vote rigging. We know why Ncube and friends are contest these elections regardless how flawed the process, David Coltart admitted why.

    “The worst aspect for me about the failure to agree a coalition was that both MDCs couldn’t now do the obvious – withdraw from the elections,” explained Senator Coltart.

    “The electoral process was so flawed, so illegal, that the only logical step was to withdraw, which would compel SADC to hold Zanu PF to account. But such was the distrust between the MDC-T and MDC-N that neither could withdraw for fear that the other would remain in the elections, winning seats and giving the process credibility.”

    Be warned, you and your MDC friends have betrayed the people of Zimbabwe in the past and got away with it; you are NOT getting away with selling out on contesting flawed 2018 elections! You contest the flawed elections and consider them you last because every Zimbabweans will know what you have done and your name will be mud! M for mother U for uniform and D for David – MUD!
