Zim opposition headed for yet another crushing defeat

MDC-T deputy president Obert Gutu says Zimbabwe's opposition was headed for yet another crushing electoral defeat to a Zanu-PF that has maintained an octopus grip on the country's poll management systems.

He was speaking at a panel discussion at SAPES Trust on the voters roll and the status of key legislation ahead of the July 30 polls.

In his comments, Gutu said the current set-up of the country's electoral systems, coupled with the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission's (ZEC) continued refusal to open up its operations to public scrutiny, spelt disaster for Zanu-PF opponents.

He singled out ZEC's refusal to allow the opposition to test the quality of printed ballot paper.

"We are about 5 weeks or less before elections are held…and here we are, like lambs to the slaughter; going to July 30 to participate in an election which I can safely say its result is predetermined. I can put my head on the block and say that is."
