The Zimbabwe Election Support Network has issued a damning statement backing down from its earlier election report which claimed that the polls were free and fair and endorsed President elect Emerson Mnangagwa as a winner amid its revelations that its top official was colluding with ZANU PF to produce a bias report.

"On behalf of the board and all members of Zimbabwe Election Support Network (ZESN), I hereby call for an Extraordinary General Meeting on 23 August 2018  to among other things consider the controversial report on the 30 July 2018 harmonised elections. It has come to the attention of the Board that members of the secretariat and the Director, Rindai Chipfunde Vava have been working with state elements to cover up election fraud committed by ZEC. We further have credible evidence that Ms Rindai Chipfunde Vava has been promised to be substantive Chief Elections Officer (CEO) at ZEC after Mnangagwa's inauguration," said Zesn.

"The agenda is as follows:
1. Review of the 2018  elections  programmatic report with special emphasis on the contentious Parallel Voter Tabulation results.
2.Leadership renewal in the Secretariat
3. Review of the 2018 financial report."

The meeting will be on Thursday 23 August 2018
Time: 9am - 3pm
Venue: ZESN offices
