My Vote Zimbabwe: John's choice by Waza Africa published on 2013/07/15 10:08:17 +0000 John was born and raised in Zimbabwe and voted as a Zimbabwean for most of his adult life. But in 2005, that all changed when his name was taken off the voter’s roll. Why? His parents are from Malawi. Since then, Zimbabwe’s voting laws have changed, and now allow people born of foreign parents to vote again – and John is ready to vote! In the run-up to Zimbabwe's elections, scheduled to take place on 31 July, we’re bringing you the personal stories of what voting means to everyday Zimbabweans. Each edition of My Vote Zimbabwe features one person’s story in his or her own words. There’s no presenter, no interviewer – nothing to get in the way of people's most memorable moments at the ballot box. Do you have a story about your most memorable voting experience?
