Over ‘250 000 ‘Ghost Voters’ Appear On ZEC Voters Roll’
The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) is reported to have released a register of voters with over 250 000 ghost voters on its final biometric voters’ roll (BVR).
The alleged scam, according to the experts who have been analysing the data released by the poll management body, is feared to have involved the highly-discredited Registrar-General’s Office.
An independent team of BVR, electoral administration, human rights and data science experts who sifted through the roll claimed that they unearthed several discrepancies, indicating that over 250 000 ghost voters were on the roll.
The alleged shortcomings also expose a fatal failure by the AFIS software used by Zec for reduplication.
However, Zec chairperson Priscilla Chigumba yesterday dismissed the findings as “fictitious”.
According to the experts, given that the system used by Zec does not allow for duplication of identity numbers, the Registrar-General’s involvement could have been sought to deal with this issue alone.
