2024 Harare summit to consider SADC EOM report

Story by Bruce Chahwanda, Political Editor

THE final Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) Election Observer Mission Report will be tabled for consideration at the regional bloc’s next summit in Harare next year.

Responding to the SADC Election Observer Mission Final Report, the Minister of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs, Honourable Ziyambi Ziyambi said the report will be tabled at next year’s summit in Harare for consideration.

“We are glad that they have completed their report which will be submitted to the summit which will be held in Harare next year. Thereafter, if the summit adopts it, we will be able to consider what they recommended. We will accept what we feel is relevant to us and those that are not relevant to us, we will reject. Most importantly in that SADC report, they indicate that our legal processes must be followed to resolve any dispute that might arise,” he said.

The government will adopt recommendations that suit the local environment.

“When we go to any election, we invite our friends, neighbours and international organisations that we work with to come and observe our elections. After having observed, they produce reports and recommendations that we will consider so that we improve our own systems of how we conduct our elections. In other words, this is a peer review process,” said Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi.

Zimbabwe held General Elections in August this year with regional and international organisations being invited to observe the process.
