We are not paying US$15 voter registration bribe- Crisis Coalition

Staff Writer

CRISIS in Zimbabwe Coalition (CiZC) has dismissed allegations of paying citizens US$15 for them to register to vote.

The responses come against a background where rumors doing the rounds   in several suburbs hints on a fresh wave of vote buying at the instigation of organisations fronting for the opposition political party.     

But in a statement, CiZC distanced themselves from the speculative messages.

“On another note we dismiss with contempt, malicious allegations by the Zanu-pf activists during the public hearing that the coalition is offering an incentive of US$15 for citizens to go and register to vote.

“As an umbrella body of civil society organisations, public participation, including voter education and mobilization is at the core of our work and this can never be criminalised,” CiZC said.

CiZC urged Zimbabwe elections Commission to decentralise its services and create more voter registration centres and avoid disenfranchising potential voters.
