WASHINGTON DC —
The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) formation of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai says plain clothes police and suspected state security agents Thursday raided its Gwanda offices in Matabeleland South and confiscated 10 motorbikes without a search warrant.
Secretary-general Promise Mkwananzi of the party’s Youth Assembly said his party views such moves as harassment.
Mkwananzi said Zanu PF officials in the same province recently received a donation of 10 motorbikes from Tsholotsho lawmaker Jonathan Moyo but police have not confiscated them.
Studio 7 could not reach Gwanda police for a comment.
Police last week also raided the MDC-T’s offices in Bndura, Mashonaland Central, confiscating 15 motorbikes in the process.
Meanwhile, the mobile voter registration exercise continues in all provinces amid reports that few people are registering to vote in the forthcoming general election.
The on-going mobile voter registration exercise continues amid reports from all provinces around the country that many people are failing to register or check their names in the voters’ roll due to lack of publicity.
The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission Wednesday revealed it did not have enough funds to carry out the exercise.
For persepective on the mobile voter registration exercise, Studio 7’s Sandra Nyaira turned to Zanu PF’s information officer Psychology Maziwisa and the MDC-T’s Cecil Zvidzai. Maziwisa blames the MDC for problems affecting the exercise.
