Published: 22 July 2019 (189 Views)
VINCENT, the younger brother to the late MDC Glen View South National Assembly MP Vimbai Tsvangirai-Java, has declared his interest in contesting MDC primary elections, in a bid to replace his departed sister who died after a horrific accident on her way from Bulawayo.

Vincent and Vimbai are siblings of the late iconic opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai. Following the tragic death of his sister, Vincent wants to fill the void and contest in the by elections slated for September 7.

Authoritative sources told the Daily News on Sunday that nine hopefuls will battle it out for the sole ticket to represent the party, among the contenders secretary for Education Fadzai Mahere and former representative of the constituency Paul Madzore.

September 7 has been set as the date for by-elections in Glen View South and Mangwe constituencies.

Mangwe was left vacant following the death of Zanu-PF legislator Obedingwa Mguni who died after a long battle with diabetes.
