HARARE - The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) on Monday said it reported the presidential candidates of the two main political parties in the Southern African country for suspected violation of the Electoral Act.
Zec chairperson Justice Priscilla Chigumba told journalists in Harare that the commission had noted with concern continued violations of the electoral act by candidates contesting the 2018 elections.
“On July 29, at least two candidates gave statements which were published in the media and might be interpreted as campaigning...the matters have been referred to the police for investigation for possible violation of the law,” she said.
Chigumba said Zec could only take action after full investigations.
The reported candidates are Zanu PF’s Emmerson Mnangagwa and the MDC Alliance’s Nelson Chamisa.
