Zec must shape up or ship out — Tsvangirai

MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai says the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) should resign if they are incapable of running this Wednesday’s crucial polls.

Addressing tens of thousands of supporters at his last rally ahead of Wednesday’s polls which have been dubbed “The Crossover Rally” Tsvangirai urged the electoral managing body to quit if they are not capable of putting their house in order so as to run a credible election.

“The credibility of the forthcoming elections lies in the conduct of Zec.  If they are not responsible then they should do the honourable thing and resign,” Tsvangirai said.

Tsvangirai also said with only a day to go he has not been given the voters roll as a presidential candidate.

“As a presidential candidate I do not have the voters roll and my chief election agent is in police custody because of Zec’s incompetence,” Tsvangirai said.

“I respect state institutions like Zec but I will not respect a deliberate attempt to subvert the will of the people,” he said.

Tsvangirai also took a swipe at President Robert Mugabe for claiming MDC is corrupt.

“I am shocked at Mugabe that he can stand up and claim MDC is corrupt — who stole the money from proceeds of diamonds, who stole the money from Zinara and the stands in local government?”

“Robert Mugabe should respect the intelligence of Zimbabweans,” Tsvangirai said.
