Zanu Pf Announces Elections Re-Run In Select Constituencies
The ruling party Zanu-PF yesterday disclosed the official list of successful candidates in the primary polls to contest for the National Assembly seats in elections set for July with more of the party veterans making it into Senate.
Candidates that were elected for the senatorial and women’s quota seats were also unveiled.
“We continue with the announcement of the candidates that were successful in the contestation of our candidates. I gave out names of candidates who were successful for the National Assembly and I left out some names that had not reached our offices by close of business yesterday,” said political commissar, Lieutenant-General Engelbert Rugeje (Retired).
The candidates announced last night are Cdes Mackson Mudenda (Binga South), Cephas Mudenda (Binga North), Sonny Key Mguni (Bubi), former Victoria Falls mayor Nkosilathi Jiyane (Hwange West), Reeds Dube (Hwange Central), Gorden Chanda (Gokwe Sesame), Torerai Moyo (Gokwe Chireya), Justice Mayor Wadyajena (Gokwe Nembudziya), Leonard Chikomba (Gokwe Kabuyuni) and Webster Shamu (Chegutu East).
“As I indicated yesterday there are certain constituencies which we are going to have a re-run of the primary elections.
“The National Elections Commission is going through a number of appeals and after their adjudication we will then determine which constituencies are going to be re-run in terms of primaries,” Lt-Gen Rugeje said.
Responding to the demonstrations that occurred at the party headquarters yesterday he said it was the democratic right of people to express themselves.
“There were a few people who demonstrated outside and we believe it is their democratic right to do so but after they were addressed by our commissariat department that whatever appeals they had launched were going to be addressed they then dispersed,” Lt-Gen Rugeje said.
