Zanu-PF Official Says Zanu-PF Is Creating Its Own Voters Roll

Omega Hungwe, the Zanu-PF deputy political commissar has said that the ruling party is creating its own voters roll justifying why some members of the party are demanding to see the biometric voter registration (BVR) slips from those who register. Hungwe said that the BVR slips are being used to compile cell registers, which will then be referenced when choosing potential candidates. Speaking at a Zanu-PF provincial meeting in Masvingo, Hungwe said:

Cell register is the voters’ roll of Zanu PF. No one will participate in primary elections if their name is not on the cell register, I am very sorry. Even candidates will not be voted for if they are not on that register. The registration slip is the ticket for one to be in a cell register. We want to see the registration slips so every person must bring the slips.

However, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) and the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) have said that it is illegal for anyone to demand voter registration slips.
