Zimbabwe African National Union v. United African National Council 1980 ZLR 69: Influencing voters.
Applicant political party sought to interdict a rival party from providing food, drink and entertainment at rally, and from conducting a draw at the rally with 6 motor-cars as prizes. Such practices become an offence in terms of s111 of the Electoral Act when done in order to influence voters how to vote. The proposed draw of motor-cars was not necessary to enable persons to attend the rally and amounted to the offence of bribery in terms of the Electoral Act.
