Over 600 000 people are yet to register to vote in the rural districts of Zimbabwe ahead of this year’s watershed elections, Nhau/Indaba has learnt.
This follows revelations by Minister of Home Affairs, Kazembe Kazembe who is also Zanu PF Provincial chairperson.
Kazembe rallied all unregistered voters to take advantage of the current blitz by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) to register voters as well as the escalated service by the Civil Registry department to avail identity particulars.
He said officers from the Registry department in his ministry have been dispatched to all the wards in the province to cater to all those who might have missed the opportunity during its previous registration blitz.
“l would kindly want to remind the electorate, our people to go and register to vote. ZEC is on the ground together with the civil registry department workers. Take advantage of them and have your identification cards and register to vote,” he said.
As Zimbabwe prepares for the elections, the political atmosphere has become busy with all political parties and civil service organisations encouraging the electorate to register for participation during the plebiscite.
The current ZEC blitz is expected to end next Tuesday and has been running countrywide since March 10. Nhau/Indaba
