MDC Alliance, ZEC ballot paper row intensifies: Alliance principal reveals their next move


The perpetual battle between MDC Alliance and ZEC will see the two locking horns in court again over the printing of the ballot papers.

"We are going to court on Tuesday and we are going to be supported by our lawyers, we want to know where the ballot paper was printed where it is coming from and who is keeping the ballot," Tendai Biti told supporters in Mutasa at the weekend.

"This election is about hope, the people of Zimbabwe need change, the people of this country need transformation, prosperity and opportunities," he said.

Biti also said that the alliance will file an urgent court application at the High Court today against the Zimbabwe National Water Authority chief executive officer Jefta Sakupwanya to cancel his candidature for Mutare Central Parliamentary seat.

The Alliance said Sakupwanya candidature was unconstitutional as he was still occupying a public office.

"Sakupwanya is the chief executive officer of Zinwa but the constitution does not allow you to take part if you are occupying a public office," he said.

"So his candidature is illegal and unconstitutional, he is abusing state resources and we are told that they are using Zinwa cars here to campaign," he said.
