– A group of political parties coalescing under the banner of the National Electoral Reforms Agenda (Nera) will hold electoral reforms demonstrations in five districts of Masvingo province on Friday.
MDC-T Masvingo Provincial Spokesperson Dust Zivhave confirmed the development and said the demonstrations will be held in Masvingo, Gutu, Jerera, Nyika and Chiredzi where demonstrators will handover petitions which demand electoral reforms to Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) offices in these districts.
He said the parties have notified Police about the demonstrations and they hope nothing will stop the planned event. He also said all the parties under Nera are mobilizing their supporters for the demonstrations.
"MDC-T Masvingo Province and our partners under the Nera banner are organizing demonstrations demanding electoral reforms. We will hold the demos in five districts on Friday and we have notified the Police about it so we hope they will not bar us from demonstrating.
"All the parties which we are working with are all busy mobilizing their supporters so that they come in their numbers. In Chiredzi we will start at Tshovani stadium and march to town via the bus terminus into Msasa Drive and in town we will submit our petition at ZEC offices which are at NSSA building. Other demonstrators will do the same in various districts,"
"What we are demanding are electoral reforms which create a level playing field during the elections. We demand a new voters roll, non-partisan electoral body, demilitarized ZEC, international observers, diaspora votes, no role for chiefs and Tobaiwa Mudede, voter education by NGOs and a free and fair election.
If our concerns are not addressed we will continue with the demonstrations and spread them down to ward levels," said Zivhave.
