Chigumba Clashes With Makarau, Says Diasporans Are Illegal Voters

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission Chairperson Priscilla Chigumba has contradicted her predecessor, Rita Makarau on the thorny subject of the diaspora vote.

I’m not arrogant, it’s the law: Chigumba

Chigumba is set for a clash with Makarau after declaring that diasporans are illegal voters. She said there is no provision in the law to allow diasporans voting rights.

She was writing in response to the head of the London based Zimbabwe Diaspora Focus Group, Ezra Sibanda on the matter.

She said, “we regret that we are unable to accede to your request for the reason that currently there is no enabling legislation for Zimbabweans in the diaspora to vote.”

But her predecessor Makarau weeks before leaving announced that diasporans can vote.
