    Does #Tajamuka people really believe that ZEC, as it is presently constituted, can ever deliver free, fair and credible elections?

    As it is presently constituted ZEC, like the other State Institutions like the Police, Judiciary, etc., is nothing more than just another department of Zanu PF whose principle task is to ensure no-regime-change. This is why NERA and now #Tajamuka demands for ZEC to change have all been a futile waste of time because the real change in ZEC’s performance will have to start with the structural reforms designed to sever the corrupting influence of State President of ZEC.
