One in three on Zimbabwe voting list is dead
Saturday 22 January 2011
Nearly one-third of Zimbabwe's registered voters are dead, and others appear to be babies or up to 120 years old, researchers said yesterday.
They have called for the list to be overhauled so that the upcoming election cannot be rigged.
The independent Zimbabwe Election Support Network's report said that the anomalies opened the way for "double voting and other rigging intentions". The group found 2,344 voters between the ages of 101 and 110 still on Zimbabwe's voting rolls, a dubious figure in a country where the average life expectancy is a mere 44 years.
