Could it be that Rita Makarau (c) a judge and chairman of ZEC has finally decided to take on Tobaiwa Mudede (r), the Registrar General, and why over Gideon Gono's senatorial candidacy?
So we wake up to read that Gideon Gono, former Governor of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, will not be a Senator any time soon because he is not registered to vote in Manicaland. We really care little whether or not Gono becomes a Senator. The truth is, it really won’t change anything in our lives as ordinary people. He’s just another heftily privileged fellow who happened to drop off the first class section of proverbial gravy train and is now hoping to catch another lift, albeit in the economy class. What has really caught our attention is ZEC’s new-found assertiveness, boldness and enthusiasm in applying the law and its powers regarding the voters’ roll and voter registration.
