Newly elected Norton member of parliament Temba Mliswa has revealed that he is ready to ditch the constituency as he won't seek re-election in Norton in 2018.
He said he is going back to Hurungwe, a seat he held before being kicked out of Zanu-PF.
He won the Norton seat two weeks ago.
He said in a newspaper interview seen by Bulawayo24.com " I am not standing in Norton in 2018. I want to stand where Zanu-PF thinks its strong. I want to go for Zanu-PF, that's my point" he declared.
"I can stand in Hurungwe. They (Zanu-PF) never won there because there was violence.
"I know how to take a Zanu-PF constituency. They don't like me in Zanu-PF".
Mliswa clinched the seat after amassing 8 927 votes against Zanu-PF's Ronald Chindedza who polled 6 192.
