…as 11 candidates file CVs
Former Victoria High School head John Muzamani has thrown his name into the ring becoming the 11th entry for the hotly contested Mwenezi East Zanu PF primary election whose provisional date has been slated for May 8.
Zanu PF Mwenezi District Coordinating Committee (DCC) said it has so far received 11 Curriculum Vitae’s (CVs) from prospecting candidates and they will submit the names to the province this Thursday.
DCC chairperson Gift Mazhambe told TellZim News that the curtain was closing on the submission of CVs from aspiring candidates with all CVs to be submitted to the province for vetting.
"We have been receiving CVs from aspiring candidates since last week and as of today, March 30, a total of 11 aspiring candidates had submitted their CVs.
“The Mwenezi RDC chairperson has also indicated his intention to submit his CV so we are sure that more candidates are likely to come before the Thursday deadline," said Mazhambe.
The Mwenezi East seat, which was left vacant after the former legislator Joosbi Omar died last year, has drawn interest from educators among them Avhunga Secondary school head Master Makope, Sagwari Secondary School teacher Marvelous Chifumuro and Marinda Primary School head Jorum Ncube.
Beitbridge-based lawyer Jabulani Mberesi, Ward 13 councilor Takura Mudavose and Rutenga based businessman Simbarashe Mabhena-Mpofu are also among the contenders.
Omar's campaign manager Hassim Hoosen and Tinashe Nyoni have also thrown their hats into the ring.
Mike Mudyanembwa, Moses Muhehi and Maringire Maringire also make the list of aspiring candidates.
Meanwhile, the Nelson Chamisa led MDC Alliance has also recently convened a meeting where it advised interested candidates to submit their CVs.
Sources told TellZim News that district chairperson Alfred Chihwakwa-Sithole, district treasurer Tendekai Mandizvidza and district organising secretary Tineyi Mapepa were among the interested candidates.
