While the nation was yesterday celebrating 38 years of self-rule, Vendors Initiative for Social and Economic Transformation (VISET) conducted two Street by Street road shows in Budiriro and Mabvuku High Density suburb. The street by street initiative saw VISET teams, led by the Socio-Economic Champions (SOCHAMPS), moving around the major streets and shopping centers of the two locations distributing different IEC materials on the Biometric Voter Registration process. After moving around the streets, the teams eventually gathered at “Current” Shopping Center in Budiriro and “Kamunhu” Shopping Center in Mabvuku.
Huge crowds turned out and were kept entertained through various performances by vendors themselves and rising Zim Dance Hall star Kabhashie from Dzivarasekwa. The objective of the road shows was to enhance vendors knowledge and understanding (especially youths and people living with disabilities) of the 2018 electoral processes, particularly voter registration, electoral roll inspection and voting.
