Mujuru’s supporters threaten to shut down Zim embassy in SA

15 April 2016, 21:32

Pretoria - Zimbabwe's newly formed opposition People First (PF) party embarked on a march in Pretoria on Thursday demanding that diaspora-based nationals be afforded a chance to cast their votes when the country heads to the polls in 2018.

According to New Zimbabwe.com, more than 200 Zimbabwean nationals marched outside the Zimbabwean embassy.

Reports indicated that the marchers also threatened to shut down the embassy if their demands were not met.

The party wrote on its Twitter account: "Zimbabwe is in the throes of a serious governance crisis that has spawned unprecedented suffering among our people. We are our own liberators." 

Zimbabwe's current electoral act forbids Zimbabwean nationals, who are in the diaspora to cast their votes.

However, critics viewed as being unconstitutional as Section 67 of the country's recently adopted constitution provided political rights to all Zimbabweans, including the right to vote in all elections irrespective of where they were in the world.

Millions of Zimbabweans were resident in South Africa after fleeing the country's economic and political crisis.
