Stop pushing for reforms and concentrate on voter registration: Munyeza advises opposition

Businessman and pastor, Shingi Munyeza has advised the opposition parties to stop threatening to boycott elections if there are no electoral reforms. He said that the opposition should instead focus on voter registration campaigns in the urban areas because the playing field will never be even.

The vocal clergyman posted a document on Facebook in which he said:

The urban citizen is the most vocal when things go wrong yet voter turnout is below 30% compared to rural voter turnout of over 70% — ensure you vote when the day comes. There is never going to be a level playing field, so plan to participate in an uneven electoral system.

…Candidature is key, therefore ensure it’s bottom up in representation, whilst demonstrating leadership renewal from top down — no one lives forever and you don’t have to be the only one to accomplish everything for everyone.

The businessman also the opposition not to focus on social media trends while ignoring their grassroots structures. He warned that social media can be misleading:

Less than 10% of voters are on social media, conentrate on grassroot structures. Social media is both entertaining and misleading, beware of fake news
