Barely three days before the nomination date set for January 26, 2022, expelled former Chivi South MP, Killer Zivhu, recently announced that he will not take part in the by-elections as an independent candidate. The by-elections slated are for March 26 this year. 

In a video which is in the hands of The Mirror, Zivhu said he had made a promise to President Emmerson Mnangagwa that he is not going to stand as an independent candidate.

Zivhu was expelled from Zanu-PF in June 2020 after he posted on his microblog Twitter handle that Mnangagwa and the Citizen Coalition for Change leader Nelson Chamisa should find one another for the nation to move forward.

I have promised President Emmerson Mnangagwa that I will not stand as an independent although I was expelled. I have been supporting Zanu-PF since 1995 and its almost 27 years now, so no matter what happens to me, I will never renounce the ruling partys ideologies. I have been preaching the Zanu-PF ideology since then.

“It is not true that I will contest as an independent. I dont know where those writing that I am going to stand as an independent are getting that information from. I am not even in Chivi, I am in Harare. I will not even go to Chivi. I will abide by my promise to ED and I will continue supporting him.

The former legislator went on to say he is a die-hard supporter of the revolutionary party although he expressed some misgivings on some members of the party who orchestrated his demise.

Because I have a misunderstanding with my fellow comrades within the party, it does not mean that I should then renounce Zanu PF ideologies. I will continue supporting Zanu-PF although I was fired. 

Zivhu served as Chivi council chairperson from 2013 to 2017 before he was elected the Chivi South legislator in the 2018 harmonised elections.
