Mutsvangwa’s Supporters Call For Rerun Of Zanu-PF Primary Elections In Norton, Cite Vote Buying, Interference By Police

Zanu-PF members in Norton have urged the party’s national commissariat to order a rerun of primary elections that saw Langton Mutendereki beating President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s special advisor Christopher Mutsvangwa.

Zanu-PF Central Committee member Bybit Tsomondo accused the police of interfering in the elections while  Zanu-PF Mashonaland West secretary for Science and Technology Nyasha Sibiya accused Constance Shamu of buying cellphones for cell chairpersons and paying them $200 each. Sibiya also sought to disqualify Mutendereki saying that he has only two years in Zanu-PF, so he cannot represent the party in the upcoming elections as a House of Assembly candidate. Said Sibiya:

We also wondered how certain candidates who failed to meet the party’s criteria were allowed to contest. For instance Cde Mutendereki has only two years in the party yet the circular from commissariat was clear that all candidates for House of Assembly should have served the party for five years and above. Mrs Shamu bought cellphones for cell chairpersons and paid them $200 each. She is from Chambara in Chegutu but she was patrolling at polling stations in Norton and the police allowed her access to polling stations as and when she wished. We find that to be irregular. She started to campaign in this constituency eight months ago against party regulations. We are appealing to the President to be wary of some of these characters who are infiltrating our party
