Some Zanu PF activists are mocking the outcome of the 2016 United States presidential election following reports that some scientists believe that the polls were allegedly rigged in certain states.

Higher Education Minister Jonathan Moyo sparked a debate on social media Wednesday when he twittered that some Americans are concerned that the election was rigged.

“There are growing fears the US election was rigged and this is being reported by the US mainstream media citing credible scientists,” wrote Moyo on his Twitter handle.

In response, some of his followers believed that the presidential election won by Donald Trump of the Republican party was rigged.

But other respondents thought Moyo was reminding them of how elections are normally conducted in Zimbabwe where there have been claims of election rigging over the years.

Mutsikira Cuthbert wrote, “It’s very interesting (Moyo’s tweet). Isn’t the same media that tipped Hillary (Clinton) to win? What else can they say after misleading us!”

A person going by the Twitter handle Col Kaddaffi twittered this in response to Moyo’s tweet. “This does justify or normalizes our own kind of rigging.”

Other followers like Thembani Nkomo noted that technology cannot be trusted in conducting elections. “Technology has got it’s own pros and cons, she (Clinton) has to challenge the results just in case at least for those three states (Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania).”

Calvin was not too conservative with his words towards Minister Moyo in his tweet. “Ooh yea its easy to raise eyebrows when you see some familiar tricks.”

According to some media organizations in America, some scientists claim that computers were either hacked or manipulated in three states, where Clinton surprisingly lost to Donald Trump.

But others believe that these scientists are disgruntled Democrats still recovering from Trump’s shocking win in an election most polls predicted a win for the former secretary of state.
