Minister of Justice Ziyambi Ziyambi says once one becomes a prisoner certain rights like the one to vote no longer accrue to them.

He says within the country’s current laws prisoners do not have the right to vote.

He made the remarks while answering questions from journalists at the Cabinet press briefing, saying those who wish to vote in Zimbabwe should not commit crimes.

‘’Coming to the question on prisoners’ privilege to vote, Honourable Chair, once you become prisoner certain rights no longer accrue to you.

“And within our current laws our prisoners do not have the right to vote, so if you want the right to vote don’t commit a crime,’’ he said.
