Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) chairperson Justice Priscilla Chigumba last night said “Vote counting has commenced in some areas in terms of provisions of the law. The counting is conducted in the presence of agents, observers and members of the press at polling station level.
“The stakeholders are respectfully reminded that once the processes of counting has commenced they are not allowed to leave the counting centre until the process has been finalised.”
