tobaiwa mudede 14-12-10.jpgThe Registrar General’s Office has dismissed recent media reports alleging discrepancies in the country’s voters’ roll.

Registrar General Mr Tobaiwa Mudede disputed claims that Zimbabwe’s voter’s roll is in shambles amid allegations by some sections of the media alleging discrepancies involving minor children, people over a 100 years old and deceased persons.

While expressing disappointments at such claims, Mr Mudede also challenged those making such claims to come forward and assist his office in addressing the anomalies.

“If there are such people who do exist in our voter’s roll, I urge those with evidence to come forward and assist us. Our computers’ database would never take in under age voters as they are programmed to reject such discrepancies,” said Mr. Mudede.

Mr Mudede also revealed that the documentation of Zimbabweans in South Africa was done over three months and processed approximately 78 189 passport applications and to date 51 014 of those applications have been issued.

However, with elections looming observers say authorities should be on the lookout for some political parties who do not want elections to be held early and will go to any lengths in making unfounded claims such as the ones against the voter’s roll.
