MDC Alliance is mobilising voters to reject the attempt by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission to replace the party’s MPs with nominees from Thokozani Khupe’s political formation which was rejected by Zimbabweans in 2018.
MDC Alliance Secretary General Chalton Hwende, quoted by NewsDay, accused ZEC of violating the rights of thousands of voters who chose legislators of their choice.
“It is the same as what happened in 2018 when a man who lost the Presidential elections was sworn in as President.
“What is happening now is that Zanu PF is using Zec in a subtle process of stealing seats from MDC Alliance and giving them to the MDC-T.
“We are not surprised, they can do what they want, but we will not betray the people’s struggle.
“They took away the rights of people who woke up at 4am to go and cast their votes.
“I am here in Kuwadzana doing projects and residents are already signing their objections to imposition of MPs by ZEC and Khupe.
“A number of people will challenge this move throughout the country, but we also know that dictators do not respect the Constitution and will do anything to subvert the people’s vote,” said Hwende.
