Zanu-PF youth militia threatens to punish witnesses of electoral fraud
by Tererai Karimakwenda
There has been more drama after the elections, as reports from various sources allege that Zanu-PF youth militia are threatening to punish anyone who witnessed electoral fraud and speaks about it.
An increased presence of police, soldiers and roadblocks has also been reported in parts of the country.
Many voters say they witnessed incidents of electoral fraud, including people who were “assisted” to vote by ZANU PF and ZEC officials. Some people are reported to have voted twice while others saw policemen interfering with the voting process.
Ahead of the election, ZANU PF also used traditional chiefs to threaten MDC-T supporters with eviction if they did not vote for Mugabe.
It now appears that the party is using its youth militia to intimidate and ultimately silence those who have evidence that this crucial election was manipulated.
Many voters who witnessed fraud told SW Radio Africa they did not want to be identified because they feared reprisals.
