Double candidates to haunt MDC Alliance

Double candidates to haunt MDC Alliance
Published: 22 June 2018 (286 Views)
The MDC alliance has fielded more than two candidates in five constituencies of Masvingo province, a situation which can reduce the opposition coalition's chances of winning.

In Zaka West, The alliance fielded Festus Dumbu and Dr William Zivenge while in Masvingo South, Lovemore Matongo and Justin Makota will both contest on the alliance's ticket.

In Gutu district, the alliance fielded two candidates in each of the three constituencies namely Gutu North, South and West.

In Gutu North there is Juniel Manyere and Edmore Maramwidze Hamandishe while in Gutu South, Crispa Musoni and Ernest Mandigo will both contest on the alliance's ticket.

Stanley Manguma and Knowledge Mupini are also alliance buddies who will, however, contest against one another in Gutu West unless one of them withdraws before the ballot paper is printed.

In an interview, Dr Zivenge said the matter was supposed to be addressed by the alliance's principals whose decision would be final.

"We are currently on the ground and we are waiting for the principals to sit down. Those who will be told to withdraw will do so," said Zivenge.

On his part Matongo, whose Masvingo South had been reserved for Makota's Transform Zimbabwe (TZ) as part of the coalition deal, vowed to press on with his campaign.

"Our alliance partner failed to show people of Masvingo South their structures and even few people to prove that they are active in the constituency," said Matongo.
