Elections will be fair – New ZEC Chair

    Newly appointed Zimbabwe Electoral Commission  ( ZEC) chair Justice Priscilla Chigumba has promised Zimbabweans a free and fair harmonised poll in 2018.

    “One thing I am sure of is that once I get in office ,I have to offer free and fair elections and it my mandate,” said Justice Chigumba after being sworn at the State House.

    She also highlighted that she is aware of the concerns raised especially from opposition parties and she will work and deliver.

    “We will look in to the concerns which are being raised by opposition parties towards elections, which include delivering credible polls, I am an umpire and ZEC is the admin board,” added Chigumba

    The appointment of Commissioner Chigumba followed the  resignation of Justice Rita Makarawo who resigned in December last year.

    The new ZEC chair was appointed justice of high court in December 2012.

    The appointment of the new ZEC came with the appointment of  commission of inquiry into the matter of sale of state land in and around urban areas since 2005.

    The commission is being chaired by Justice Tendai Uchena and  the members are Dr Heather Chingono , Dr Tarisai Mutangi, Ms Petronella Musarurwa Ms Vimbai Nyemba, Mr Andrew Mlalazi and Mr Steven Chakaipa.
