In an interview with NewZimbabwe.com, Mthwakazi Republic Party president, Mqondisi Moyo said they have engaged their lawyers to challenge the disqualification of some of its candidates by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC).
Moyo said ZEC disqualified Mthwakazi candidates under unclear circumstances. Said Moyo:
In Matebeleland South ZEC disqualified us. In Gwanda South, Njabulo Ngwenya was disqualified, and so was Edmund Nleya in Mangwe under unclear circumstances because both of them were nominated by registered voters. We are making efforts with our lawyers to challenge ZEC’s decision.
The party managed to successfully field candidates in all the 12 constituencies in Midlands province while in Matebeleland North they managed to forward nine candidates out of the 13 constituencies in the province.
