In a letter dated 06-07-18 addressed to the Chairperson of ZEC, Counsel Denford Halimani demanded an urgent clarification regarding the deployment of teachers to polling stations or constituencies where they are not registered. ZEC was given an ultimatum to respond by day end Friday 06-07-18 failure would prompt the legal counsel to escalate the issue by filing an urgent High Court application.

No correspondence was received from ZEC and ARTUZ has since instructed Mr Halimani to file an urgent High Court application to seek relief for the affected teachers.
