CHECHECHE–The Zanu PF politburo has announced Robert Nyemudzo, as the winner of the party’s Chipinge South constituency, barely two weeks after disqualifying him and announcing sitting Member of Parliament (MP) Enock Porusingazi as the winner.
Nyemudzo got 4733 votes against Porusingazi’s 1585 votes but was disqualified on allegations of brewing illicit beer. The Politburo then announced Porusingazi as the winner.
Last night Zanu PF national political commissar Mike Bimha told journalists during a post-politburo briefing that the party had reinstated Nyemudzo after he was cleared of the charge.
Porusingazi is the sitting MP.
The politburo set down to finalise the party’s final list of primary election winners following five re-runs held over the weekend.
Justice Minister Ziyambi lost the Zvimba West seat to Maruva Mercy Dinha while Gokwe –Nembudziya MP Justice Mayor Wadyadyena lost the seat to Flora Buka.
The two are allegedly close allies of President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
In Mutare West Brighton Manyengureni who had been initially announced as the winner was replaced by Nyasha Marange.
Spare Sithole will now represent the party In Insiza South after Andrew Langa withdrew from the race.
The politburo also endorsed the candidature of Ephraim Fundukwa, who will represent the party in the Churu Constituency, while Martin Matinyanya will represent the party in the Mbare Constituency.
