Zimbabwe’s state radio says police arrested three polling campaigners for
illegally promoting voter awareness ahead of crucial elections.

The station said on Sunday the activists were not authorised to carry out
voter education by the official elections commission. It said they were
giving out information on polling procedures in an upmarket Harare suburb on
Saturday.

Another 19 democracy activists were arrested last month for allegedly
impersonating state election officials in a drive to get potential electors
to register their names on voters’ lists. They are still waiting to appear
in court.

President Robert Mugabe (89) said on Friday he would proclaim a date for the
elections next week, after the Parliament passes a new constitution.

He wants polls earlier than the September date demanded by his opponents in
the dispute-ridden coalition government. – Sapa-AP
