It has been claimed that there was vote-rigging in those elections, but the report has never been made public. The process has not been without its drama.

The state argued that it could not be compelled to hand over the report if it was no longer in existence. The report was eventually found, and it was decided a copy should be stored at the office of the president of the appeal court Lex Mpati. Joined Aug 26, Messages 40, What a long road this has been.

Zim’s elections not free and khaampepe http: The page document found the actual running of the three-day voting process, excluding delays in urban areas Harare and Chitungwiza, to have complied with the legislative requirements and to have been free of violence and or apparent ballot tampering. Wait, so Zanu-PF stole the election? I am so surprised!
Supporting skunks, wherever they shall be found.

The Zimbabwe Exiles Forum hopes repot release of the report, named after Judge Sisi Khampepe, will lead to elections in Africa being monitored long before and after election day. But it will be a hollow victory if independent organisations do not change the way they monitor African elections in the future.
Mbeki had tasked the two judges, now serving on the Constitutional Court bench, with leading the Judicial Observer Mission to cover the March 8 to 10 Zimbabwe presidential elections and drawing up a report on their observations.

But the judges weighed this finding against khmpepe activities such as intimidation and the deaths of mainly opposition members and lengthy legal battles to change laws in favour of Zanu-PF, largely around citizenship and the reduction of polling stations in urban areas, where the strongest opposition party Movement for Democratic change had its largest support base. Civil society Right to Know and the Zimbabwe Exiles Forum agreed that the struggle for the release of the report showed that civil society needed to be supported in holding presidents to account.
It was principally the pre-polling and other environment that informed our assessment of the conduct of elections. We recognise that the opposition parties fully participated in the electoral process up to the end.
We acknowledge that on polling days, no significant irregularities have in Harare and Chitungwisa occurred, the report said.
LazyLion King of de Jungle Nov 19, In his first public response on Wednesday to the Khampepe Report –released only after a long court battle — Zimbabwe’s Movement for Democratic Change leader accused Pretoria of “wittingly or unwittingly aid[ing] the subversion of democratic processes in Khampepr. The South African judges who observed the run-up to Zimbabwe’s presidential elections declared in their report that the vote “could not be described as free and fair”, but Pretoria went on to endorse longtime leader Robert Mugabe’s victory.
Tsvangirai has never accepted his defeat in that poll, or in subsequent reporr.
A verdict on a court challenge to the poll result had still to be delivered, the opposition leader said. In a statement to the press Wednesday Tsvangirai said: Tsvangirai, who lost presidential elections last year to Mugabe yet again and whose popularity is now on the wane, said: Sneeky Honorary Master Nov 19, Waiting to hear from Mac, and of course Thabo.

Well, I seldom agree with your comments but the most disturbing fact of this all which many suspected for a long time is that the ANC apparently sacrificed democracy the will of the people for reort, something else!
They can perhaps present many reasons for discounting this particular report, there was another observer report from a bunch relort people commissioned by the SA gov that gave the green light. It seems they chose one over the other, but tried to erase this one!
What has happened is that this report from these 2 highly respected and Honorable individuals has been swept under the carpet in favor of the other, and for years they have fought tooth khmpepe nail to try and prevent it from seeing the light of day. One needs to ask why, and it is only right khampwpe answers are forthcoming! Getting back to my first sentence, if they can adopt this approach with a neighboring country, SA being the so called beacon of democracy, they have no moral reason for not doing the same reporg, which is quite disturbing to say the least.
Why else would they stop it from being made public? They used the zim tactics to inflate their numbers in the elections here. What other reason could there be? We all know the elections were not free and fair there so what other possible explanations could there be. Sneeky Honorary Master Nov 20, You must log in or register to reply here.
