Transform Zimbabwe has expressed concern over circumstances surrounding the yet to be introduced Biometric Voter Registration kits procurement, urging opposition parties to come together if they can entertain chances of defeating Zanu PF in the 2018 elections.
Addressing journalists in Harare on Monday, the party leader, Jacob Ngarivhume accused the ruling party, Zanu PF of rigging elections saying a united opposition has a higher chances of winning the 2018 elections.
“Government wants the BVR and SPB because they want to add their people on the voters role as they have done in the past and we are going to say no to that.
“We are demonstrating in the streets to the government to stop that, petitioning SADC to force government to rescind from their decision and we are also taking legal actions to force the government to respect the independence Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, (ZEC),” said Ngarivhume.
He added, “As TZ we have been working under NERA banner to fight for electoral reforms and BVR is one of the reforms we have been fighting for.”
TZ is among the 18 opposition parties in the country who are working under the banner of National Electoral Reforms Agenda in fighting for electoral reforms in Zimbabwe.
However, Ngarivhume urged citizens to vote freely without fear vowing to enlighten people about voter registration following his party’s launch of the ‘voter registration and education campaign program on March 4, 2017.
Ngarivhume sensationally claimed that his party will mobilise resources to ferry people from South Africa to come and vote in the 2018 elections.
