Zanu-PF Sends New Bulk SMSs Thanking Recipients In Advance For Voting For ED Mnangagwa

Mobile Phone - SMS - Zimbabwe, Mobile Penetration

Zanu-PF has sent out a fresh batch of bulk SMSs ‘thanking’ people for voting for President Mnangagwa on the election day which is now three days away.

Zanu-PF is no stranger to sending bulk SMS asking for people’s votes. And the sensational part of the bulk SMSs is that they were said to be unsolicited by people who received. Consequently, the issue ignited a backlash, with some people accusing of POTRAZ, ZEC, Econet or colluding with Zanu-PF.


The backlash prompted one Masvingo lawyer to take, Zanu-Pf and other three parties to the High Court for facilitating the sending of unsolicited messages to his phone. Since then we haven’t heard what became of the case.

Same old story

This time its no different, some people who received the SMSs are saying they didn’t give their phone numbers to Zanu-Pf.

Until ZEC releases a full report with conclusive findings, we won’t know where Zanu-Pf is getting people’s phone numbers.
