Were Zimbabwe elections really rigged? If so, why did Chamisa allow this?


“From each constituency, the data experts sent through the results on a secure line to the party’s ‘war room’ in central Accra. About eight hours after the close of polling on 7 December, Anokye told Africa Confidential, his team had checked and verified 80% of the results in the presidential election. They gave Akufo-Addo a 10% lead over Mahama which gave the party an inner confidence when the governing NDC claimed that President Mahama was ‘cruising to victory’.”

If the MDC Alliance, has the figures from all 10 895 polling stations, or from its 45 000 election agents, why does it not publish them now especially for the national assembly seats to show the rigging. In fact it could have started doing so, constituency by constituency as ZEC announced its results, to show the rigging.

Party leader Nelson Chamisa yesterday tweeted, just before violence broke out: “THANK YOU ZIMBABWE …I’m humbled by the support you have given to me as a Presidential Candidate. We have won the popular vote. You voted for total Change in this past election! We have won this one together. No amount of results manipulation will alter your WILL #Godisinit.”

He should give the nation proof, in figures.
