Zanu-PF youth league national political commissar Godfrey Tsenengamu has called for people to move forward despite knowing that there was rigging in the party’s primary elections. Speaking at a rally, Tsenengamu said,
We are against those who are still angry over the primary elections. I will give you my own experience. I contested for the Mt Darwin seat, we were 19 candidates. The election was chaotic, cell registers were tampered with, some ran away with ballot boxes, while others voted during the night. However, as a loyal party member, I am in support of the winner…The party is more important than getting a position…Despite the chaos, I accepted the outcome and I expect those still bitter to do the same.
War veterans secretary-general and Deputy Minister for Defence (War Veterans) Victor Matemadanda also echoed the same sentiments saying that cheating is part of elections.
