The Registrar-General spoke in the wake of claims from MDC-T that the registration exercise was an elaborate plot by Zanu-PF to rig the elections.
In an interview on the sidelines of the Johane Marange Apostolic Church Passover at Mafararikwa Shrine in Marange yesterday, Mr Mudede said this exercise has been ongoing since 2010 and has nothing to do with the 2018 harmonised elections.
Mr Mudede said he should be credited for coming up with a system that has no room for rigging.
“When elections were held during my time when I was in charge, the opposition won so many seats in Parliament, but they did not say anything. They have their own problems and should not drag Mudede into their mess.
“My silence is not stupidity. I don’t want to mention names, but some of the people who are so vocal come to me and commend me for a good job. They know that saying so publicly is suicidal to them.
