Renamo Claims Fraud During Mozambique Poll

Renamo national election agent Andre Majibire says an hour after the polling stations opened he received reports that, in the municipality of Maganja da Costa, the chairpersons of the stations were giving three ballot papers to voters whom they believed were members of Frelimo. When Renamo polling station monitors tried to protest to the police, they were beaten, Majibire says. Two other polling station officials were arrested in Nampula and Inhambane for allegedly handing out extra ballot papers to voters according to the anti-corruption NGO, the Centre for Public Integrity.

Renamo claims that extra ballot papers were given to Frelimo members during municipal elections.
