Constitutional law expert Alex Magaisa says it was a lack of wisdom on the part of the MDC Alliance that resulted in ZANU PF candidate winning the Goromonzi West seat. Writing on Twitter on Thursday, Magaisa said:
It is principally the lack of Solomonic wisdom in Goromonzi West that delivered the ZANU PF candidate into Parliament. 2 MDC Alliance candidates who in that contest had a total of 16,965 between them. The ZANU PF candidate got 12,384. That ZANU PF candidate is Energy Mutodi.
If Solomonic wisdom had prevailed and voters had been sufficiently persuaded to back one of the 2 candidates, it is probable that the baby would have survived. Instead, one pulled to one side, and the other to another side, and both ended up with nothing. They gave us Energy.
