Verdict On Nduna Victory To Be Delivered By Electoral Court

The Electoral Court is set to hand down its verdict in the case in which MDC Alliance candidate Gift Konjana is challenging newly-sworn-in Zanu PF legislator Dexter Nduna’s victory in the Chegutu West National Assembly elections.

This comes after magistrate Mary Zimba-Dube who presided over the matter postponed the ruling to today to allow the parties to bring more evidence.

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) had initially announced Nduna as the winner with 10 932 votes, and Konjana with 10 828 votes.

Konjana challenged the result, claiming the electoral body mixed up the figures.

While Zec reportedly admitted to have made an error, the electoral body advised Konjana that the results could only be overturned by the Electoral Court.

This prompted Konjana to file a petition with the Electoral Court in Harare seeking the nullification of Nduna’s declaration, adding a tabulation error occurred and prejudiced him of 120 votes that had been erroneously awarded to one Simon Kache of UCADPGPZ.
