Other people have also observed irregularities regarding voting papers, with Crisis in Zim Coalition’s Macdonald Lewanika tweeting that in Chipinge South’s Ward 28, voting had been suspended because pictures of ballot papers for MPs had been swapped – with a picture of ZANU Ndonga on MDC, and MDC on ZANU Ndonga papers.
