MUJURU, KHUPE, Matibenga headline women votes mobilisation campaign

HARARE. – Women Electoral Convergence 2018, a platform for women to mobilise for the forthcoming harmonised elections as candidates and voters is launching its #Hervotewins2018 campaign to sensitise and mobilise women in Zimbabwe to actively take part in the elections next year.

The platform, currently involving eight political parties, aims to empower women to participate in next year’s elections as candidates as well as encouraging women to vote each other into political office.

Event coordinator, Honourable Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga believes WEC18 recognises that women make the bulk of registered voters with 52.48 % of those registered for the 2013 elections being women thus forming a formidable constituency that will determine the outcome of the election in 2018.

The campaign, which is a coalition of women votes, will be launched on Saturday 06 May 2017 at the Nelson Mandela Hall at the Showgrounds in Harare and will be attended by prominent politicians including NPP President Dr Joice Mujuru, MDC-T Vice President Thokhozani Khupe, Lucia Matibenga of PDP among a host of others.

The event will also be graced by ZEC chairperson, Justice Rita Makarau, MP for Harare West, Hon Jessie Majome and representatives from the Election Resource Centre, Zimbabwe Election Support Network , Media Monitoring Project, the Zimbabwe Republic Police among other key stakeholders who will hold panel discussions on critical issues such as “creating a safe ballot, feminising the electoral process and the recruitment drive called “Mother and Daughter Project”.
The event starts at 10am and is expected to run until 4:30pm.
