…sets sight on Zaka East

Upenyu Chaota
Zanu PF has continued to prove their dominance in the rural areas after retaining the Masvingo North’s Ward 1 seat in a local authority by-election held last Saturday.
The Masvingo North local authority by-election was held on the same day with two national assembly by-elections in Mangwe and Glen View South.
Zanu PF won both rural by-elections of Mangwe and Ward 1 but lost in the urban Glen View South.
 In Ward 1, two candidates from Zanu PF and MDC battled it out with the former emerging victorious by a big margin from the little votes cast.
Zanu PF’s Richard Kudakwashe Murambiwa polled 1 166 votes against MDC’s Escot Chawatama paltry 334.
Zec Masvingo provincial election officer Zex Pudurai said the election was held in a peaceful environment and all the nine polling stations opened in time.
“The environment was peaceful and as Zec we were ready for the elections. We had a total of nine polling stations and all opened by 7am,” said Pudurai.
Pudurai said they were gearing up for the Zaka East national assembly by-election which is slated for September 21.
“We have a national assembly by-election in Zaka East on September 21 and we are working towards that now,” said Pudurai.
Zanu PF Masvingo provincial political commissar Jevas Masosota said their party’s victory shows that people had confidence in Zanu PF and President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s leadership.
“Zanu PF is the popular party and our people know that. They will not be fooled by these other political parties because they know who has their best interests at heart.
“Other political parties will just be wasting their time contesting Zanu PF because they know they have nothing to offer to the people. Zanu PF ndeye chitenderano and our people keep showing that they will stand with their party,” said Masosota.
Masosota said they are now focusing on retaining Zaka East which fell vacant after the former legislator Katson Gumbwanda died in June.
“Our sights are now set on retaining Zaka East. We have promised President Mnangagwa that we are bringing the seat home and that is what we are going to do. We have a good candidate in Clemence Chiduwa and the people are standing firmly behind him.
“Nothing is going to stop Chiduwa from winning this seat for Zanu PF,” said Masosota.
Masosota said they were expecting Vice President Kembo Mohadi to come and address a rally in Zaka East on September 18.
Chiduwa will go toe to toe with MDC’s Derick Charamba, NCA’s Clemence Chavarika and FreeZim Congress’ Lazarus Mubango.

  1. Good day readers, I am writing this comment with a grateful heart to testify of my dealing with Mama Hope the greatest and real spiritual healer , who helped to save my marriage. A few months back, my beloved husband had no time for me and the kids, he payed more attention to his mistress than he do to his own wife and kids. Sometimes i would want to file for divorce but after a long time thinking about it , i would always change my mind because i didn't want my kids to have a broken family. I was out of idea on how to make my marriage a happy one, so i thought of getting spiritual help, because the spiritual actually controls the physical. So i had to search online for a spiritual healer to help me save my marriage, but i did not get any useful solution for all they where after was my money. I almost gave up on everything and just kept enduring all the pains my husband was making go through with the kids more so without any help from his family too since it was not that fine way back home. On one faithful morning i decided to give my mom a call and told her how i was tired of everything going in my life and was done with being patient. She then came up with my very last idea on contacting a spiritual healer that her friend had referred her too some time back when she had the same problem , this time she directed me to a woman called Mama Hope(+27635876438), i contacted her and she told me not to even worry she will handle it, she sent some materials for me and directed me on how i should use them as she made the prayers.
    Surprisingly i saw changes in my husband after 3 nights of doing as she had instructed me. It was like a miracle, infact it was a miracle, i never knew my husband had even ever been romantic , until after making the spiritual prayers by Mama Hope, he said he was not in had not been in his right mind and was even begging for forgiveness, it was all funny to me at first but later i realized all thank was to Mama Hope.
    So my dear incase you are having and life struggles and feel like giving up, its never late in life, kindly Call or Whatsapp Mama Hope on +27635876438, she will deliver you with her prayers.
