BHASIKITI CAUGHT IN RACISM STORM

EX ZANU PF MP TO CONTEST ELECTIONS UNDER MDC ALLIANCE

The MDC- Alliance candidate for Mwenezi East Mr Kudakashe Bhasikiti has been caught up in a racism storm. Zanu-PF has fielded a candidate of Indian descent, Joosbi Omar, to fight it out with Bhasikiti. Omar is seeking to retain the Mwenezi East National Assembly seat.

Bhasikiti said on Twitter, “Contesting an Indian in rural Mwenezi no matter how much people are intimidated they will choose one of their own. Zvekuti kuZanu nyangwe ukaisa dhongi vanhu vanorivhotera zvakaenda nemwene wazvo.”

Some commentators indicated that this was an example of a violation of the Electoral Law’s Code of Conduct on elections, which all candidates sign.

A candidate cannot discriminate on the basis of race & ethnicity. Mr Bhasikiti is a former Zanu-PF Mwenezi East legislator. He served as Masvingo Provincial Affairs Minister during the Mugabe era before he was sacked from the ruling party.

Mr Bhasikiti wandered looking for a political home and joined the Zimbabwe People First then led by Dr Joice Mujuru.

He later joined the MDC Alliance led by Mr Nelson Chamisa, which has nominated him as its candidate for the Mwenezi East constituency.

On Saturday Mr Chamisa introduced Mr Bhasikiti as the alliance’s candidate for Mwenezi East constituency.
