The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has dismissed claims that there are 250 000 ghost voters on the biometric voters roll.

In a statement ZEC said the claims was a lie.

"In one of the cases by a local daily, the Automated Fingerprints identification system picked that Chikondowa Varaidzo registered three times  giving three different places of residence. In the first entry she registered on December 15 2017,  and was  allocated Chirovakamwe A Primary School polling station in ward 15 of Mutare Junior Municipality.

"On May 29 2018 she again registered giving  proof of residence close to Mutare Junior school polling station in ward 11. Her third registration was on May 31 2018  where she was allocated a polling station in  at Hillside sports club in ward 12 of Mutare. Her entries recorded on December 15 2017 and May 31 2018 have been removed from the final roll leaving the May 29 2018 record  only," ZEC said.

Zec also dismissed claims that it gave voters details to Zanu PF.
