Load Shedding Affecting Voter Registration - ZEC
The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) says recurring unscheduled power cuts are negatively affecting the ongoing final mobile voter registration blitz at some centres.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, ZEC said the situation has been worsened by the cloudy weather conditions prevailing in some parts of the country.
ZEC, however, assured citizens that all people who are eligible and willing will be registered for the upcoming harmonised elections. ZEC said:
The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) hereby notifies the public that it is currently experiencing technical difficulties at some of its registration centres.
This is due to shortages of electricity affecting the charging of the BVR kits.
The situation is also worsened by the cloudy weather, which affects the solar-powered BVR kits.
ZEC assures the public that every eligible citizen will be registered.
