THE opposition MDC-T party has called for a national demonstration on June 5 to force President Emmerson Mnangagwa's government to agree to reform demands.

Party spokesperson Thabita Khumalo told on Wednesday that they have been forced into a corner by Mnangagwa's "intransigence and goal-shifting" regarding reforms before elections now set for July 30.

Khumalo said her party is not happy with amendments to the Electoral Act passed by Parliament and signed into as by Mnangagwa early this week.

She added that the opposition would continue to demand an open tender for the printing of ballot papers.

Nelson Chamisa's right-hand man Charlton Hwende said on Twitter, "Why we are going to demonstrate @ZECzim 1. Denied voters rolls 2. Tampered ballot paper will be printed at Fidelity Printers 3. Fake additional polling stations being created to rig 5 June Munhu wese mu Road."

According to Khumalo, ZEC's new biometric voters' roll whose inspection ended on Tuesday has "suspicious centenarians on it".
