Mpofu promises 'no one will be denied to vote' yet says nothing about POLICE reforms - game changers

Mpofu promises 'no one will be denied to vote' yet says nothing about POLICE reforms - game changers
Published: 13 December 2017 (298 Views)
Ever since the coup, everyone in Zanu PF is going the extra mile to try to convince us that the party has turned a new page it is not the same corrupt, incompetence, vote rigging and tyrannical regime of the bygone years of Mugabe.

"The Ministry of Home Affairs and Culture has assured voters that it will tirelessly work to ensure that no one is turned away from the on-going Bio-metric Voter Registration (BVR) program due to lack of proper identifying documentation," reported Bulawayo24.

com.

"This was said by Minister Obert Mpofu as he addressed top ministry officials at a team building meeting held in Harare last week."

"Citizens should not fail to vote because they do not have the necessary identity documents. But rather, they should only do so on their own volition. So, let us diligently play our part," said the Minister.

Experience of years of abuse by the school bully tells me Minister Mpofu and his Zanu PF colleagues are not to be trusted because, like the school bully, they are gloss over issues. If he was since about making sure no Zimbabwean was denied the right to vote because he/she did not have identification documents to enable them to register then he should have enquired how many people were already been affected. The exercise is in its last of four months, there is no way that the Ministry would recover the lost ground.

If Minister Mpofu was really interested in turning over a new leaf then he, of all people must know that the Police have failed to keep law and order during the elections, turned a blind eye to Zanu PF inspired lawlessness and even taking part themselves by denying the opposition permission to hold rallies or worse. As Minister of Home Affairs the conduct of the Police fall under his brief.

Why has he said nothing on the real big issues like implement reforms to ensure the Police play their part in ensuring next year's elections are free, fair and credible?
