The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission has sent  Justice Priscilla Chigumba to go and observe the South African polls.

Justice Chigumba and her team are expected to go and take a leaf from South Africa’s electoral systems, said Zec commissioner Dr. Qhubani Moyo.  Moyo Said:

Zec dispatched its chairperson Justice Chigumba, the director voter education (Rejoyce Sibanda) and its acting Chief Elections Officer (Utoile Silaigwana) to observe South Africa’s elections. This is also a follow up to the learning visit during which Zec had also dispatched its chairperson, commissioner (Qhubani) Moyo and its CEO and also members of political parties that are represented in Parliament to go and understand the electoral processes in South Africa as a neighbour and a member of Sadc. So it’s a follow up to go and have a practical understanding of what is going on there.

ZEC has been facing criticism from political analysts and opposition parties for conducting local electoral processes in “an impartial” manner.
