NGOs offer kombis to ferry voters to BVR centres

HARARE - The ongoing voter registration mobilisation campaign by the Zimbabwe Human Rights Association (ZimRights) and the Election Resource Centre (ERC) has moved a notch up as minibuses have been ferrying prospective registrants to nearby registration centres.

During the door-to-door campaigns and road shows held in Kuwadzana and Dzivaresekwa in Harare on November 7, the vehicles spent the day ferrying those who wanted to be registered as voters to the nearest registration centres.

Most of those, who benefitted from the free transport had also been battling with the issue of proof of residence, but were lucky to be assisted by commissioners of oaths at the one-stop service roadshows.

Since the beginning of the voter mobilisation, ZimRights has assisted 9 732 people with affidavits for proof of residence.

The BVR process will last for 72 days and will be held in four phases. The first phase ended on October 25, with the next chapter opening on October 29 — till November 13. The third phase started on November 16 running to December 1 and the fourth and last phase commenced on December 4 and ends on December 19.
