Community Tolerance Reconciliation and Development (COTRAD) in collaboration with the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) on 04 and 08 February 2018 held Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) road show campaigns in Mpandawana town registering and encouraging potential registrants to register during the mop up exercise.
The campaign was running under the theme “Go and register to vote” and over 100 people were registered during the roadshow.
COTRAD programmes manager Zivanai Muzorodzi said that of the seven administrative districts of Masvingo province, the analysis have shown that Gutu has the largest population but with the lowest number of registered voters hence the reason for the road show. “We are not targeting Gutu alone but also areas such as Mkwasine plantations and mining communities like Mashava encouraging aliens to take this opportunity and exercise their right through the ballot.”We have held similar campaigns in Zaka, Chiredzi, Mwenezi, Chivi and Masvingo Central,” said Muzorodzi. Muzorodzi said people should register to vote, go vote and protect their vote
