Daniel Chingoma, who became famous after attempting to make a helicopter was told to go back twice because his things were not in order. In the first instance, he was asked to resubmit new passport size photos because in his old ones he was wearing a cap.  However, when he returned the officials informed him that some of the people who had nominated him are not on the Voters’ Roll. So he was asked to get different people to nominate him. According to the regulations, a candidate needs to be nominated by not fewer than 10 voters who are on the voters roll from each of the 10 Provinces, meaning one needs 100 votes.

  3. Some planted parties have chickened out. Only few have remained. Even those which are clearly family outfits have braved to part with $1000 to enter the presidential race. Its a year of plenty. Did you count how many MDCs and ZANUPFs are in the race? Meso awa anovonerera gwendo runo. Icho….icho…..icho

  4. Mama gadzirirai kuita 1st lady/ papa gadzirirai kuita 1st gentleman. Wish you the best. Icho……icho,…….icho
