Ambrose Mutinhiri Must Withdraw As A Presidential Candidate: Zhuwao

Self-exiled former Labour Minister Patrick Zhuwao has written an open letter to National Patriotic Front (NPF) presidential candidate Ambrose Mutinhiri pleading with him to withdraw as a presidential candidate.

Zhuwao says Mutinhiri should withdraw because the NPF did not field enough candidates to ensure a successful presidential campaign. He said had NPF fielded a strong representation it would have meant there would be someone campaigning in all parts of the country for Mutinhiri. Part of Zhuwao’s open letter reads:

The results of the nomination courts on 14th June 2018 are not good for the NPF. NPF only managed to field candidates in 95 out of 210 constituencies covering 45% of the country; nominated 20 out of 60 senators to give a third; 15 of the possible 80 provincial councillors making it 18.75%; 14 of the 60 women’s quota to give 23.3%; and 78 out of the 1,958 councillors to make a paltry 3.98%. The objective reality arising from a realistic and critical analysis of the outcome of the nomination process shows that NPF does not have the ground force to sustain a successful Presidential bid.

Zhuwao argues that that while Mutinhiri will indeed get some votes, they will not be enough to make him an outright winner.
