A former MDC Alliance councillor, Mbekezeli Ndlovu, who served as Kwekwe City Councillor for two terms before he was ousted by Nelson Chamisa in 2018 is set to contest for MDC-T in upcoming Parliamentary by-elections.
Speaking to NewZimbabwe, Ndlovu confirmed the reports promising the electorate that he will be a listening leader if elected. He said:
Once voted by the people, your visibility to them is very important regardless of rich or poor, take their concerns seriously, don’t give false promises.
I will make sure l listen to everyone regardless of political affiliation, and will be free to associate with everybody, rich or poor.
It would be a tall order to please all but my wishes would be done openly because it won’t work if I undermine others, to me it won’t work.
People would be my masters, l have to respect voters first, l promise to create jobs for the benefit of Kwekwe Central.
The Kwekwe Central Constituency seat fell vacant following the death of Masango Matambanadzo of the National Patriotic Front who succumbed to coronavirus in July this year.
Meanwhile, Vice President Constantino Chiwenga who doubles as the Minister of Health and Child Care recently declared that by-elections will not be held this year due to coronavirus.
