CCC Polling Agents In Hwange Central Unpaid For Services, Three Weeks After The Elections

Some CCC members who were deployed as polling agents in Hwange Central for the 23 August Harmonised Elections have reportedly not been paid for their services.

The affected polling agents from Empumalanga Suburb in Hwange told CITE that those who raised these concerns in the CCC Hwange Central Polling Agents WhatsApp group were removed by the group administrators for being “too vocal.” One of the polling agents said:

When we asked our chief polling agent, he said the party was supposed to pay us. When we asked who was responsible for making the payments, whether there is any treasurer, provincial office or any local office, we were told CCC has no structures. From the ground up to the main, the head is (CCC leader Nelson) Chamisa.

We are not getting answers via the proper channels. We don’t have the actual figures of how much we will receive.

The chief elections officer in Ward 4 just said we will receive our money or tokens of appreciation.

Another disgruntled agent claimed that there were over 150 polling agents in the WhatsApp group but those who requested their tokens were removed by the group administrators. Said the agent:

About seven to eight members were removed from the group for being too vocal. The group admins include one Charity Munenge and the MP, Daniel Molokele.

We don’t know if other polling agents in Victoria Falls and Lupane have been paid. But I know two guys in Lupane who were complaining that they too have not been paid.

In some instances, some candidates who were businesspeople and had extra money were paying agents from their pockets.

When contacted for comment by the publication, CCC national spokesperson, Promise Mkhwananzi, said the polling agents “should get in touch with the relevant authorities within the party,” which was the “Elections department.”
