Zanu PF: We Ferried Some Voters to Polling Stations

  • Blessing  Zulu

Zanu PF has admitted that it bused some voters to polling stations though it dismisses as misguided Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s remarks that the elections were rigged.

Zanu PF spokesman Rugare Gumbo said his party is tired of the MDC-T leader’s complaints.

“The people who were bused are those who had been turned away from polling stations. I see no problem in doing that," said Gumbo.

A video circulating in social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter shows a group of suspected Zanu PF youths being nabbed by MDC secretary general Tendai Biti attempting to vote in one of the constituencies in Harare.

And political analyst Trevor Maisiri of the International Crisis Group said many questions remain unanswered over the election.

According to the state-controlled Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation, out of 28 national assembly results released so far, Zanu PF has won 25, most of which are from Masvingo and Mashonaland West provinces.

MDC-T has three seats so far, two in Bulawayo and one in Chinhoyi.
