MDC-T Bulawayo Youth Assembly provincial deputy secretary Mr Takunda Madzana accused the party’s secretary for elections Mr Murisi Zwizwai and deputy treasurer general Mr Charlton Hwende of imposing candidates and fraudulently running the candidates’ selection process.
We want to raise an alarm in the conduct of one honourable Zwizwai who is our secretary for elections in the main wing. And Mr Charlton Hwende, who is from the national election directorate. As a province we set aside Bulawayo South as our youth quota after Mpopoma-Pelandaba was subjected to an open contest. The above mentioned leaders came all the way from Harare to impose a sham election in Ward 6 of Bulawayo South and called it a Members of Parliament primary election. These two shameless gentlemen who are trying to commercialise the struggle have naturally declared themselves enemies of the Youth Assembly and as a result it is our position that we don’t want to see them again in Bulawayo on issues to do with candidates’ selection.
