32,010 names to be scrapped from voters roll

HARARE — Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has said that 32,010 names will be removed from the voters roll unless notice of appeal is given to the electoral body.

ZEC made the announcement in the latest Government Gazzete saying the deceased registered voters died during the period December 12, 2017, and January 31, 2022.

“It is hereby notified, in terms of section 33(4) read with section 27(1) of the Electoral Act [Chapter 2:13], that voter registration officers have reason to believe that the persons whose names are listed in the First Schedule, and who were registered as voters for the constituencies, wards and polling stations listed therein have died,” said Chief elections officer Utoile Silaigwana.

“The names of those persons will be removed from the voters roll unless notice of appeal is given to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission,” Silaigwana added.

“By means of this notice, notification is made to any voter on the First Schedule who may be alive to lodge an objection, at the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission Mahachi Quantum, 1, Nelson Mandela Avenue, corner Kaguvi Street and Jason Moyo Avenue, Harare, and at the respective Commission Provincial Offices, to the inclusion of his or her name in the First Schedule using the form prescribed in the Second Schedule no later than seven days from the date of publication of this notice,” he added.
