Written by Panashe Madzinga on April 30, 2018
The ZANU PF primary elections which began yesterday were marred by logistical nightmares as they failed to kick off on time due to the late arrival of ballot papers from the provincial headquarters.
The primary elections which were meant to commence at 7am were delayed as the ballot papers arrived at command centers in the afternoon.
Speaking to YA FM news, the Zanu PF Midlands Provincial spokesperson Cornelius Mpereri confirmed that they were logistical challenges and due to the late start of the voting process, the election will continue today.
Meanwhile, voters who were waiting at polling stations in and around Zvishavane also questioned the level of transparency in the elections, saying they were suspecting foul play.
They also called for proper communication channels, saying they were waited for long hours to cast their ballot.
Some of the candidates who spoke off the record also questioned the credibility of the elections, saying the delays and lack of adequate security in the distribution of ballot papers was a cause of concern.
