"We have given the benefit of the doubt, we have followed every lead.

"Where evidence has not been proffered or these allegations have not been sustained, [the] time has come to dismiss them," he said.

Moepya explained that some of the 20 people attempted to vote more than once but there is no evidence that they were able to vote again.
