ZEC Denies Ties to Controversial Figures Amidst ZACC Corruption Probe and Public Outrage

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has vehemently denied any business relationship with Wicknell Chivayo, Mike Chimombe, and Moses Mpofu, amidst a growing public outcry and an ongoing investigation by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC). 

This denial comes in the wake of allegations that the trio, currently under investigation for alleged theft of trust property and money laundering, were awarded contracts for the supply of election materials.

The Controversial Procurement: Allegations of Fraud and Influence Peddling

The allegations center around a US$9 million contract for portable toilets and vests, allegedly awarded to a South African company linked to Chivayo, Chimombe, and Mpofu. The deal has sparked outrage, with accusations that the toilets were overpriced and delivered late.

Furthermore, the fact that payment was approved by Finance permanent secretary George Guvamatanga just two weeks after the election has fueled suspicions of political manipulation.

ZEC's Rebuttal: A Denial of Involvement and an Emphasis on Transparency

In a statement, ZEC emphatically denied any involvement with Chivayo, Chimombe, and Mpofu, asserting that all election materials were procured through a rigorous and transparent process. The commission emphasized that they have no contracts with these individuals and that no third parties were involved in their procurement processes.

Disputing the Allegations: ZEC's Claims of Accurate Costs and Timely Delivery

ZEC also refuted the figures reported in the media, claiming that the actual costs of election materials were significantly lower than the alleged figures. They maintained that all materials were delivered on time, contrary to the allegations of late delivery.

A Call for Evidence and a Dismissal of Rumors

ZEC challenged the accusers to present concrete evidence of any agreements with Chivayo, Chimombe, and Mpofu, dismissing the circulating rumors as "mischievous" and "misleading."

The Importance of Transparency and Accountability

The allegations and the subsequent denial highlight the crucial importance of transparency and accountability in election processes. Public trust in the integrity of elections is paramount, and the ZEC must address the concerns raised by these allegations with full transparency and a commitment to due process.

A Call for a Thorough Investigation and Public Scrutiny

The ongoing ZACC investigation into Chivayo, Chimombe, and Mpofu is crucial for uncovering the truth behind the allegations of corruption and influence peddling. The public deserves a full and transparent accounting of the procurement processes for election materials, ensuring that any wrongdoing is brought to light and held accountable.
