Zanu-PF Matabeleland South Province resolved to appoint provincial chairperson Rabelani Choene as the Beitbridge senatorial candidate instead of Vice President Kembo Mohadi’s wife Tambudzani Mohadi. Alma Mkwebu will no longer be the senate candidate for Gwanda after Rennie Kibi was declared the winner.
The decision comes after Zanu-PF Matabeleland South Province rejected the list of parliamentary and senatorial candidates which came from the party’s national commissariat headed by retired Lieutenant General Engelbert Rugeje. Speaking soon after a closed door meeting with Matabeleland South provincial leadership, Vice President Mohadi endorsed the move by the Provincial Coordinating Committee’s to draw a fresh list of candidates. Said Mohadi:
The PCC is the authentic body so they have the right to come out with the final list of their candidates. Those who are grumbling, there is nothing to grumble about, we are Zanu PF, we are not voting for individuals but the party. So your little battles are over.
