THE Zimbabwean Electoral Commission (ZEC)’s delay in announcing results of the presidential poll does not help the Zimbabwean situation in any way. In fact the longer the delay the more the view becomes credible that Zanu-PF is just buying time to cook the results.
Yes, ZEC might be waiting for the right time to announce the presidential poll results given the fluidity of the situation in that country. However, further delay could have opposite unintended from the presumed good intentions of ZEC. By holding back the results, ZEC so to speak, is holding the Zimbabwean people in suspense thereby compounding their suffering. That’s not all but by procrastinating the announcement of the results ZEC is not helping the governance vacuum that is steadily crippling in.
For the last two decades or so the Zimbabwean people wherever they find themselves have been suffering and continue to suffer. Internally, they have been at the sharper end of an economy with an inflation rate in excess of an unprecedented 100??????’??
