A new project that encourages Zimbabweans to do their part to ensure that Presidential election results are not manipulated on July 31st has been launched.

The purpose of the campaign named-Simukai Protect Your Vote-is “to place the results of president in the public domain in real time,” according to rights group Sokwanele.

The process invlves three steps,with Sokwanele urging voters to check and note the identity number of the polling station at which they intend to cast their vote.

“After you have voted remain at the polling station untilvoting is complete.Once results are posted autside the station,as is legally required,you can claim your power by sending an sms of the reslts of presidentil election to one of the numbers:-+27713563219 or +27713562087.
