Chigumba disowns Twitter account

HARARE - Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) chairperson Priscilla Chigumba has distanced herself from a bogus Twitter account that is posting controversial updates in her name.

In a statement Chigumba said the Twitter account was bogus and created by individuals who sought to create confusion.

“Zec wishes to inform members of the public that the chairperson of the commission, Chigumba, does not have a twitter account,” Zec acting chief elections officer Utoile Silaigwana said.

“The purported account on Twitter attributed to her is fake and a fraudulent creation of unscrupulous elements meant to mislead the public. Zec urges the public to disregard any statements posted on the fake Twitter account.”

Chigumba has come under the spotlight following her announcement of Zimbabwe’s harmonised election results.

Zec came under fire after it cut President-elect Emmerson Mnangagwa’s win by a marginal 0,1 percent, but insisted the error was purely clerical.

It is actually idiots likeTinowaziwa who are being abused by zanu pf party.They have been abused for years but like an abused wife they always go back to their abuser after every 5 years to pledge their loyalty.They always turn to their abuser for food handouts and fertiliser forgetting that it is the same mafia that has made then unable to buy food and fertilisers for themselves.As the old shona adage goes,Kwadzinorohwa matumbu ndokwadzinomhanyira.Shame on you all who still want to be associated with a murderous party called zanu pf.

Tinowaziwa is a CIO agent or suffers from Stockholm syndrome, even die hard zanu supporters knows the truth that there is nothing good that will ever come from zanu. Zanu must be banned from a truly free New Zimbabwe
