Youths embark on voter education

The voter education exercise comes amid the realisation that thousands of youths in the Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai-led party are not registered to vote.
“We have embarked on a voter education programme,” said Promise Mkhwananzi, the MDC T youth assembly secretary-general.

“We want to ensure that 1 million youths get registered and once that is done, Zanu PF is finished.”

He said the programme was also designed to ensure that the MDC-T youths would be able to “roll out protests to defend the party votes should Zanu PF rig in upcoming elections.”

The Youth Initiative for Democracy in Zimbabwe, which is spearheading a programme to assist youths with voter registration, indicated that “getting registered to vote is not youth-friendly” owing to the RG Office’s tendencies of citing various excuses to bar youths from registering for polls.

Mudede could not be reached for comment last week as he was said to be out of the office.
