A human rights activist and MDC sympathiser, Partson Dzamara, has admitted that his party lost the Cowdray Park local government seat to ZANU PF due to the party’s own ineptitude rather than rigging.
This comes as party president Nelson Chamisa’s spokesperson, Nkululeko Sibanda, blamed Tropical Cyclone Idai and rigging for the loss. Said Dzamara:
I see some are in denial regarding the defeat our party suffered in Cowdray Park over the weekend. It’s actually ridiculous for anyone to even suggest rigging. Hama, there was no rigging apa, we were beaten because of our internal issues. We must attend to those issues.
Commenting on Dzamara’s Tweet, journalist Elias Mambo commended the ‘honest’ assessment. He said:
Bitter truth…. #Reset iyi yakaoma mwana wamai vangu… If we say it and point it here we are always thrown under the bus…
