1] Been taking time, like most citizens, to encourage fellow citizens to #RegisterToVote2023 as well as encouraging that citizens check their registration status.

Have realised a few challenges being encountered to this regards, as well as some information gap.

a thread.....
2] #WhenDoIregisterToVote

Voter registration is a all year round exercise. ZEC ordinarily has some 63 District offices & 10 Provincial officers allover the country, where one can register to vote.

Baring challenges affecting ZEC, registration itself is a continous exercise.
3] #WhatIsTheBlitzRegistration

This exercise has ZEC introducing "mobile registration" campaigns, meaning that registration centers are brought closer to our homes to compliment their Provincial & District offices.

It's important that all eligible voters take advantage of this.

1] ZEC shenanigans & ZanuPF's electro-phobia, as we edge towards March by-elections & indeed 2023 shouldn't be viewed in isolation.

For instance, ZEC was fully aware of by-elections dates & being a creation of the constitution, ought to have done more to entrench our democracy. Image
2] Last year, ZEC shared its "draft electoral road map" for by-elections.

It became imperative on them, to act swiftly in preparation of the same.

All over the country, (more so in the affected constituencies), ZEC should have ran a vigorous voter education/registration drive. Image
3] Now, after frustrating possible voters (in direct response to voter registration campaigns by CSOs), ZEC is happy to announce that registration is now on halt.

So many possible voters are being disenfranchised as a direct consequence of ZEC's deliberate incompetence. Image

1/5 AFTER THE FRENZY OF @HHichilema's WIN IN ZAMBIA, is the Zim Opposition, waiting for the next African election to be won by the opposition; to get excited again about voter registration for 2023? Where are the #RegisterToVoteZW, #RegisterToVote2023 and #YouthVote2023 hashtags?
2/5 The palpable lethargy about mobilizing citizens for voter registration is concerning; since @ZECzim is now in full swing with the DELIMITATION process & is planning a VOTER REGISTRATION BLITZ in December. By now one would have expected voter mobilization to be at fever pitch!
3/5 A key @ZECzim issue that's a source of rigging in Zim elections is about dead people on the voters roll. It's concerning that @ZECzim has been gazetting deceased voters, without public monitoring. It will be too late to complain in 2023, about dead people on the voters roll!

💰Polling agents budget💰

1⃣ As @EuropeMdc we project a US$2,31 million budget for polling agents. @mdczimbabwe
💰This means it needs between 210 and 11500 people only to fund protection of the vote in 2023. @DavidColtart

💰Polling agents budget💰

2⃣ We will have 210 constituencies, and approximately 11 550 polling stations factoring in new voters.
👨‍👩‍👧We will need 4 agents per polling station making a total of 46 200 polling agents. @daddyhope independently arrived at a figure of 44 000, PAs
💰Polling agents budget💰

2⃣ This implies an average of 55 polling stations per constituency, which translates into 220 polling agents per constituency.
Assuming that each polling agent gets a $5 allowance per meal & 3 meals/day, then each polling agent needs $15 for food/day.

1] Someone reading this from mukoma Goerge perhaps will only focus on the "chinhu chine vene vacho" mantra.

These "madhara ehondo nemahovhorisi" have monopolized the country and only wish to take turn to rule it.

Yet this isn't all that Goerge is attempting to do here... Image
2] What Goerge is actually trying to do, is promote voter apathy.

Don't get it twisted, it's not just the democratic alternative that is "learning" from both the Malawi & Zambia political developments.

ZanuPF is learning also.

They are worried sick and are dreading elections. Image
3] That tweet from Goerge, equally betrays his and ZanuPF's collective fear of @nelsonchamisa

When you see the spin doctor of a regime that is propagating the narrative that Chamisa is finished, continuously attacking him daily, know that they don't believe their own lies. Image
