Nevers Mumba Submits Zimbabwe Report to SADC

Emmerson Mnangagwa will have a somber inauguration in Harare on Monday which will be attended by few regional leaders after his controversial and hotly disputed re-election.

SADC Reject Zimbabwe Elections

Zambian President Hakainde Hichilema in his capacity as SADC chair of Organ on Politics, Defence and Security Cooperation who deployed the SADC Elections Observer Mission to the Zimbabwe, showed great courage and commitment to the Sadc Treaty and Protocol on Politics, Defence and Security Cooperation.

SADC member states have an obligation and responsibility to implement interventions designed to promote democratic principles and practices in the region under the SADC principles and guidelines governing democratic elections.

Electoral observation, inter alia, serves to improve electoral integrity, mitigate electoral conflict, enhance public confidence and promote citizen participation in the electoral process.

In the short-term, observing elections provides a basis for factual, impartial and objective evaluations of the nature of the electoral process and how events play out during elections.

Nevers Mumba Submits Zimbabwe Report to SADC

In the long-term, this presents an invaluable opportunity to share experiences, information and strategies for consolidating democratic institutions and development.

In brief, observing elections helps to enhance integrity, transparency, credibility and acceptance of the results, as well as legitimacy of the outcome.

By refusing to endorse and legitimise Zimbabwe's sham elections, voter suppression, disenfranchisement, fraud and brazen subversion of the people's will, the SADC election observer mission head Nevers Mumba – deployed and backed by Hichilema – stood on the side of the ordinary people, democracy and the national interest of Zimbabwe under capture by a military-backed regime that staged a coup in 2017.

After the coup, Mnangagwa won the 2018 poll amid coercion, fraud and bloodshed.

Hichilema and Mumba's firm stand has left Mnangagwa, his cronies and hangers-on snarling with rage and making noises defending electoral theft and the incumbent's illegitimate claim to power; the third time he has done so since the coup.
