Zanu PF UK chapter has congratulated Temba Mliswa for winning thew Norton by election against a Zanu PF candidate Ronald Chindedza.

"Congratulations to Mr Temba Mliswa for winning the Norton by-election. There are some lessons for Zanu PF and the nation to learn from this this by-election and we will just name a few," said the chapter.

"Opposition parties should learn to concede defeat just like Zanu PF has done in this election. There is no massaging of figures in Zimbabwean elections as clearly people freely expressed themselves and figures were transparently announced. Zanu PF cannot and should not take the electorate for granted.

"This defeat whilst very painful provides an opportunity for soul searching and introspection. Some of the themes in this process should include the quality of our candidates, the influence of factionalism in our processes and the conversion rate of rhetoric into reality. Lessons have to learnt."
