Horror in the polling station

MARCH 31 will go down as the day I was cheated the most. As I was standing in the queue awaiting the turn to cast my vote, little did I know the horror awaiting me in the polling station.

I even went to the extent of producing a receipt of registration to prove my claim but the polling officer simply acknowledged the validity of my claim but indicated there was nothing that could be done.


What irks me is the fact that Zanu PF romped to victory in my constituency — the only one in Harare — and I know of two colleagues who faced the same predicament.


If this is not a classic example of rigging, then what else is?


Dejected,

Harare.
