By Farai D Hove| Following the LIVE recorded chaos at Mabvuku Community Centre which left the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission embarrassed yesterday, it has further emerged that published V11 forms for at least 21% of polling stations have vanished.
The full list of the 21%, to be published, shows that final totals were inflated in those stations after Monday’s polls.
The V11 is the ZEC document which announces winners at a polling station soon after a count.
The forms have been called upon after the ZEC chair Priscilla Chigumba announced results different from total tally figures.
Other reports last night stated that there are v11 forms in Victoria Falls which got destroyed by fire.
Nelson Chamisa is the leader of the youth. The time has come for him to lead and he will lead.
What is critical is for people to speak out while technical work is done to expose the 21% polling stations that did not post V11s. It’s a political and technical fight. Good luck. https://t.co/3sdoqqLeRV

Responding to a question at the ZEC Command centre in Harare on Tuesday evening, Commissioner Qhubani Moyo said the elections body had also read about the issue but had announced election results of the said area basing on declared information.
V11 forms contain election results and are posted outside a polling station when vote counting finishes.
Said Moyo: “We have read about the issue of V11 forms in Victoria Falls. After the counting was done the V11 forms were actually displayed outside the polling stations, so we are not sure where that is coming from.
“Results in that area were declared and when results are declared the V11 forms would have been signed by all the candidates that are contesting in that election.
“One of the results from Victoria Falls is the one that was read by commissioner Chigaru of Hwange West constituency where the result was declared. So we are not sure exactly what is being referred to regarding the absence of V11 forms outside polling stations.”
