Harare - Zimbabwe's main opposition party has revealed that they are getting regular briefs from 'intelligence sources' in relation to ongoing plans to rig the 2018 general elections.  

The intentions to rig the plebiscite in favour of the ruling Zanu PF party were mentioned by MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa at a rally recently.

The claims by the main opposition entity comes after President Emmerson Mnangagwa who has promised a free and fair election has failed to implement some of anticipated electoral reforms as scheduled. 

“MDC will not go into elections before electoral reforms. We are getting briefs from intelligence officers who are telling us of plans to rig the elections. The election is a mere formality because there’s no way ED (Mnangagwa) can win an election,” Chamisa was quoted by the NewsDay.

Mnangagwa rose to the presidency after the November 2017 coup, masterminded by the the army under commander Constantino Chiwenga, now the country's vice president.

“We want to thank General Chiwenga for helping us remove Mugabe, but it is time he goes home to rest,” Chamisa told supporters. The MDC-T leader assured supporters that his administration would adopt devolution and resolve the cash crisis within two weeks in office by joining the Rand Union.

Partisan politics also came under attack from Chamisa.

“Traditional leaders are being abused by Zanu PF. Food aid must be distributed fairly not according to party affiliation,” he said.

“The first thing the MDC will do is ban the bond note and return to multi-currency system, using (South African) rand and (US) dollars. The MDC will reopen industries and give people their pensions that were wiped out by inflation.”

The opposition leader mocked Mnangagwa for introducing diesel locomotives at a time most countries were using electric trains.

“Surely, we cannot introduce and celebrate diesel trains in 2018. The MDC will build a new rail system with bullet trains between Harare and Bulawayo. Zimbabwe needs $14,9 billion for infrastructure development and those who want to provide that money asked what we have in return.

“We told them we have 60 different minerals. Zimbabwe has enough gas to feed the rest of Africa for the next 200 years,” Chamisa said.

People’s Democratic Party leader Tendai Biti addressed the same rally, saying the MDC Alliance government would have an economic plan to revive the economy. Zimbabwe People First leader Aggripah Mutambara claimed that there was a sinister plot to assassinate Chamisa.

“But we will not allow it, we are more than them. So, let’s not allow them the chance. Chamisa is the link with the future, Mnangagwa is link with the past, he is link with violence and Mugabe, but we link with the future,” Mutambara said.
