Zanu-PF, MDC Alliance to square off again

Zanu-PF, MDC Alliance to square off again
Published: 22 October 2018 (235 Views)
ZANU-PF party will square off with the MDC Alliance and NCA in the Mutoko North by-election set for November 24, writes our Mashonaland East correspondent Victor Maphosa.

Rambidzai Nyabote of ZANU-PF, Mr Boniface Mushore (MDC Alliance) and Mr Edson Mugoma (NCA) will contest the seat after they successfully filed their papers at the nomination court recently.

The Mutoko North constituency seat became vacant after the elevation of ZANU-PF legislator Mabel Chinomona to Senate President.

In an interview with The Herald recently, Nyabote said he was ready to defend the seat from the opposition.

"As Zanu-PF we are ready to defend this seat, it is ours and we will keep it. We are so confident that we will even surpass the numbers which we bagged during the harmonised elections," Nyabote said.

He said as soon as he assumes office, he will strive to uplift the Mutoko North community and transform it using all the natural resources availed to  them.

"My focus is to transform the lives of people in my constituency. We have the best natural resources in this whole province and we will utilise them. I will work hard and tap into these resources for the benefit of the people," he said.

Nyabote, who won the just ended primary elections, called out to Zanu-PF supporters in Mutoko North to be united. Nyabote's call resonated with provincial commissar Herbert Shumbamhini's call for party supporters to close ranks and approach the by-election as a united force.
