"I thank you all for voting for me in the primary elections. I hope on 21 September we will win as well," said Chiduwa.

Masvingo Minister of State for Provincial Affairs, Ezra Chadzamira, appealed to the Zaka electorate to continue showing their support for the revolutionary party by voting for Chiduwa.

Chiduwa will battle it out with MDC's Derick Charamba, Clemence Chavarika of the National Constitutional Assembly and Lazarus Mubango of the FreeZim Congress .

Zanu-PF recently won the Bikita East ward 31 by-election with the party's supporters and leadership saying it was a sign that the party continues to command support due to its people oriented policies.
