A High Court petition filed by the former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and his MDC paty seeking to compel electoral authorities to produce certain information and material relating to the conduct of the July 31 election was postponed to 230pm on Wednesday after the government failed to produce various pieces of evidence.

The matter has been set down before Justice Chinembiri Bhunu.

The matter was set for hearing at 9.30 am but was initially postponed to 11.30 am before a further postponement to 2.30 pm was announced.

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) Chief Elections Officer, Lovemore Sekeramayi, Registrar General of Voters, Tobaiwa Mudede, and Zanu PF’s Robert Mugabe are cited as the first, second and third respondent.

The MDC is demanding that the ZEC to avail presidential results per constituency, copies of the voters’ roll used in all polling stations and copies of the voters’ roll used in the special vote conducted on July 14 and 15 and to be provided with a “register of assisted voters at all polling stations in the election; copies of voters’ roll used in postal voting delimited by ward and constituency; copies of the electronic voters roll as at July 31 2013; register of voters whose names did not appear in the voters’ roll but were allowed to vote using voter registration slips; the register of authorised postal and special voters and contents of the closed and sealed ballot boxes and sealed packets delivered to the first respondent”.

    Justice delayed is justice denied. Even though everyone knows the elections were tremendously rigged, we don’t expect any scrutiny of the results from Zanu PF judges. That Rita woman will tell us one day what transpired behind the scenes… Meanwhile, may the pressure continue on the election robbers!

    Nhaiwe Libombo, do you put some thought before you write. This is a Democratic country,not a one part state.MDT-C has 100% genuine and sobre reasons known EVEN BY YOURSELF. YOUR HEART OF HEARTS KNOWS and the world over.Someone is in a corner here.This is a fall with a thud.All the dignity if there was supposed to be any is totaly eroded. Shame on the opressors. YOU CAN NEVER STOP GOD’S TIME.

    Mugabe once said those seek or not satisfied with the results must “go hang themselves but even dogs won’t sniff their cacas” He concluded by promising to increase soldiers salary but not teachers and doctors.

  14. Trynald on Wed, 14th Aug 2013 4:41 pm 

    in initial apllication the MDC is claiming that it was riggid which are serious allegation of which they have to present evidence in court or risk prosecution. MT claimed they have overwhelming evidence against the electoral process which they where prepaired to present before the courts but instead the case could not commence becoz they wanted ZEC to provide certain information to them such that they may in turn provide it to the courts as evidence. dah!! do tnhey really have evidence at all or are counting on ZEC making some errors on their sibmission. if they had it y didnt they furnish it first and then the jugde tallies with ZECs submission compared to the constitution

  25. Peter Matibiri on Wed, 14th Aug 2013 8:31 pm 

    Im proud to be zanu pf. We won the election fair and square and the MDC know it. What i would want my party to do is to shame them and the rest of the world by letting their pettion run run in the courts. Thats the only way we can defeat them fo good these shameless people. This time they think we are going to interfere with the judiciary. No. We won fairly and we have nothing to hide. We will shame and silence their backers.

  26. Bla Miki on Wed, 14th Aug 2013 9:40 pm 

    l love that man Mugabe.

    Lets hope there will not come a time where by they will postpone and postpone and finally come out with a lame excuse that some of the evidence is missing and that will be the end of everything, meaning Zanu Pf gets away with it. For the nation that will be another 5 years of suffering.

    We said Morgan and his party have no strategy to unseat the old man and the evil system. I feel sorry for people who go hunting with their disabled master hound in a wheel-barrow. Plain stupid, isn’t it?
