Everyone must accept poll results: Ncube

BULAWAYO - Welshman Ncube, the president of the smaller MDC and presidential candidate, cast his vote in Bulawayo yesterday morning and urged President Robert Mugabe to accept the results.

Mugabe told journalists at State House on the eve of the poll that he will step down if he loses the elections.

“I hope that he means it and that every supporter of every party will accept the results,” Ncube told reporters.

“Let’s step back and allow the people of Zimbabwe and once they have spoken, let’s count the votes and announce the results as expeditiously and as quickly as possible and let us respect the outcome thereafter.

“And whoever emerges victorious, let every Zimbabwean accept that and wish them very well in forming the next government.”

Voting was largely peaceful, but Mugabe’s Zanu PF supporters were arrested yesterday campaigning inside a polling station in Bulawayo.

Another Zanu PF activist was found manning a polling station alone in rural Gwanda District, Matabeleland South by independent local observers.

Debra Mabunda, the focal media person for Matabeleland region for independent civil society groups monitoring the elections, said they were investigating the presence of bogus polling stations and found one in Gwanda District yesterday.

“In Gwanda, Ward 10, Bar Compound, there was a polling station that was manned by one polling agent, a Zanu PF agent,” Mabunda said.

“The polling station was not listed under a list given to all stakeholders by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission. We informed other political parties in Gwanda and they have since sent their agents.”

Some people are very funny very funny indeed. Its only yesterday that machinja were claiming to sent ZANUPF to the dust bins through this election, but all of a sudden you are now already crying before even the results are out. What is really your problem? You cannot win elections by unfounded accusations. Takambokuyambirayi kuti kutuka weZANUPF painternet hazvisirizvo zvinoita kuti party ihwine. Mukaita basa rekuteerera vana babajukwa vachikupayi masurveys ehope dzekutsvaga mari. Hezvo mawe kuridza mhere musina ambokuudzayi maresults. Asi pane zvaitika here?

Mr W Ncube is telling everyone to accept results from, I am sure even from proven bogus polling stations, and celebrate. Interesting; isn't it. He never even complained about lack of availability of voter's roll to the parties, only MDC-T made it an issue. Interestingly, in the 'professor's' and Dabengwa's 'wisdom' voter's roll are not vital documents in a voting processes, it seems . Pls wake up you 'Devolution Guyz' - who is fooling-who, here? Eyes, we have but we can't see. KKKKKK. Cry my beloved country

Before mavotes akaundwa hanzi Zanu yanga ichimwa champagne ichiti yarova MDC. Vamwe veZanu vari overzelous vakato poster pa Twitter. Ukaona panonzi naMugabe kana akaruza haarambe kubva pachigaro nenharo dzake, wobva waziva kuti he is 100% kuti Rigging yabata basa. Question ndeyekuti vazviziva sei kuti vahwina even mavotes asati verengwa. Vanga vazviziva kuti RIGGING machine yanga yashanda OVERTIME. Chasara EGPTIAN REVOLT style , three million match ku State house. Kana vakapfura vanhu , mbumburu yacho inopa chete, kusiri kufa ndekupi? Vakatanga kufpura vanhu at least the world will come to our side like Libya, i think world iri kumirira kuti titange then wobva vapindira tosunungurwa zvakaitwa Libya. 94 % unemployment, no clean water in Harare, no electricity, no health system, no basic human needs. Kusiri kufa ndekupi? Achaitonga sei Zimba yacho, achiziva kuti 12 million yemaZimba haimuda , only 500 thousand yema relatives ndiyo yake, kutonga ne ginya chaiko.

Snuuga, Inorwara nepfungwa. Why don't you also rig the elections if its so easy? You want to advocate violence like in Eqypt and libiya just becoz people of Zim have spoken? We have said: No kuhungochani, No to abuse of women, No to ne-colonialism, No to puppets of the west, period. We are a peaceful people. Iwe chiita revolt yako iyoyo wega.
