The Movement for Democratic Change has called on all Zimbabweans including those in the Diaspora to register as voters when the exercise kicks off tomorrow.
Party spokesman Obert Gutu said those in the Diaspora should sacrifice and return home to register because every vote counts.
“Our fight for the Diaspora vote continues unabated but in the interim, Zimbabweans in the Diaspora are kindly called upon to do the honourable and patriotic duty of coming back home to register to vote,” Gutu said.
“The millions of Zimbabweans in the South African Diaspora are humbly urged to cross the border into the town of Beitbridge where they can register to vote before they can return to their foreign bases.”
The voter registration exercise will end in mid-January with elections expected anytime up to August.
Opposition parties which formed the MDC Alliance have already endorsed Morgan Tsvangirai as their presidential candidate while Robert Mugabe will stand for the Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front.
