IVOTE – Zimbabwe

iVOTE Zimbabwe- Facilitating the active and positive participation of youth in electoral processes in Zimbabwe.

As political protests in Zimbabwe have turned violent and even fatal, reportedly leaving at least 12 people dead, there is a need to call for peaceful resolutions to the crisis. Many ordinary Zimbabweans expressed that hoped-for changes are yet to be felt, in access to employment, cash and broad stakeholder consultations. Our quasi-currency, operating with multiple exchange rates, is fueling a national crisis.

The youth part of the iVOTE project initiated a peace “digital conversation” to end violence and calling for peace during the Shutdown which was caused by the spike in fuel prices causing violent protests from members of groups who oppose the current government.
