US DEMANDS TRANSPARENCY IN ZIM ELECTIONS

The United States government says it is worried about lack of transparency in Zimbabwe’s forthcoming election.
“We are deeply concerned about the lack of transparency in electoral preparations, the continued partisan behaviour by state security institutions and the technical, logistical issues hampering the administration of a credible and transparent election,” State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell told Tuesday’s daily briefing in Washington.
Tendai Biti, the MDC-T secretary-general said the party was continuing in this election under protest, and would exhaust all legal channels and also go to SADC.
“This election is immoral, unfree, illegitimate and unfair. We are participating in these elections because the people of Zimbabwe are tired,” said Biti.
