Renamo yesterday denounced what it called the incompetence, negligence and incapacity of STAE to resolve problems. Spokesperson Andre Magibire said that “in nearly all provinces there is a lack of solar panels, cables and transformers.” He, too, cited the problem of equipment breakdowns.
Renamo says that in Cabo Delgado in Chiure district 21 posts are closed and in Mocimboa da Praia 6 are closed because of the attacks in the region.
Renamo alleges that in some posts in Niassa people are only registered if their documents are given to the brigades by neighbourhood secretaries or community leaders (who are usually Frelimo). In Sanga district this occurred in Nassengenge, Ngongoti, Badarila, Licole, Melania and Mapudje.
Magibire said that in Nampula registration posts are in the houses of neighbourhood secretaries in Mongincual and Mecubre districts.
In Zambezia, he said that of 40 posts in Mocuba district, only 18 are open. Morrumbala, posts in Guirita, Chiromo, Binda and Boroma are not operating because of lack of solar panels.
In Macanga district, Tete, Renamo says that voters who try to register using their 2014 cards as identification are being sent to community leaders to verify they are not Malawian.
Also in Tete, Renamo alleges that community leaders blocked the registration of Renamo members in Chizormondo administrative post, Macanga district. STAE countered that Renamo was sending party monitors who were not registered.Source: 2019 General Elections - Mozambique Political Process Bulletin
