Chief Bushu To Represent Zanu-PF In 2018 Elections, MDC-T Candidate Writes To Mnangagwa, Threatens To Take Matter To Court

An aspiring MDC-T candidate, Leman Pwanyiwa, has written a letter to President Emmerson Mnangagwa to register his complaint against Shamva South traditional leader, Chief Bramwell Bushu who is representing Zanu-PF in the forthcoming elections.

Through the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR), Pwanyiwa said he would approach the High Court if he does not get a response from Mnangagwa. The letter, dated May 29, was also copied to the Zimbabwe Council of Chiefs as well as the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec).

Bushu has been chief since June 2016 after the death of his father, Show. Show, was a Senator representing the chiefs’ council in Mashonaland Central and died at the age of 81.
