The ruling ZANU PF has underplayed the importance of by-elections to fill vacant council and Parliamentary seats left vacant mainly by MDC Alliance members who were recalled by the interim MDC-T leadership.
These remarks were made by the party’s acting secretary of Information, Patrick “Czar” Chinamasa during the party’s weekly media briefing held in Harare this Saturday.
The former Finance Minister said that ZANU PF awaits guidance from the relevant authorities like the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission on how to go about the process. Chinamasa added:
However, the Party makes it categorically clear that the By-elections are not even an issue of much interest as the Party already dominates the representation in Parly. He adds that the Opposition should therefore desist from claiming that the Party is influencing the delay.
