Former MDC-T Harare councillor, Warship Dumba, has approached Parliament alleging that election body, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) unconstitutionally changed the ward electoral boundaries. Dumba who stays in Mt Pleasant Heights said that in the 2013 elections he voted in Ward 17, Harare but has now been moved to Mazowe South for the 2018 harmonised elections. In a letter to Parliament, he wrote

The removal of Mt Pleasant Heights by Zec from ward 17 to Ward 20 of Mazowe South is both unreasonable, as it is unconstitutional and, therefore, illegal. Mt Pleasant is part of Harare and is confirmed by our tittle deeds, our bill payments are done to the City of Harare and the general-service delivery, which includes water supplies, refuse removal and general maintenance of infrastructure, which includes road maintenance. It, therefore, sounds unreasonable that Administrative and Electoral boundaries must be the same as the law of 2006 delamination.

ZEC is yet to comment on the matter.
