The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has rolled out countrywide road shows as part of the awareness programme aimed at mobilising people to register under the bio-metric voter registration (BVR) exercise.

ZEC is targeting to register all legible persons under the BVR exercise ahead the 2018 general elections.

ZEC Manicaland Provincial Voter Educator, Fungai Munyamani said the road shows which started in Chimanimani and Chipinge will spread countrywide as complimentary efforts to raise awareness on the new voters’ roll.

ZEC is currently conducting the first phase of the bio-metric voter registration exercise as the elections authority is coming up with a new voters roll to use in next year’s elections.
