Knives out for MDC leader
Said Musonza, "I hear the knives are out for poor old Jacob Mafume for his spectacular failure in organising elections."
Musonza further accused Mafume of being a noisemaker without substance.
Over the weekend Clemence Chiduwa, garnered 7 119 votes in Zaka to romp to a landslide victory muscling one Derick Charamba of MDC-Alliance, who polled 1 518 votes.
I hear the knives are out for poor old Jacob Mafume for his spectacular failure in organising elections. I warned him; he talks rubbish here on social media with no substance to back it up. Let him run 2023 polls for ya and see how disastrous it is going to turn out. pic.twitter.com/NTWQalJ5AAâ€" Bla B (@bmusonza) September 23, 2019
State owned paper Herald reported that this is the third seat to be won by Zanu-PF in by-elections held post 2018 harmonised elections after the ruling party also won in Lupane East and Mangwe National Assembly by-elections.
The ruling party has also won wards in Nyanga, Bikita, Bulawayo and Masvingo, with MDC-A managing to win only the recently held Glen View South National Assembly by-election.
