MWENEZI – The little known Joshua Moyo has won the Zanu PF Mwenezi East primary elections after he managed to fend off a strong challenge from nine more contestants yesterday to get the right to represent the party in the anticipated parliamentary by-election penciled for September.
Moyo polled 1203 votes shrugging off a challenge from his closest rival Marvelous Chifumuro who got 893 votes.
Webster Muzara came a third, with 812 votes while Mamberesi became the fourth with 499 votes. One  Mandebvu who was widely tipped to win the election is number five with 451 votes followed by Muchara who polled 447 votes . Murefu got 204 votes followed by Justin Sithole who polled 194 while Hungwe is number nine with 174 votes.
 Clara Shumba came last with a paltry 75 votes. 

Moyo is likely square off against former Mwenezi East MP Kudakwashe Bhasikiti, who has been sacked from the party and has been challenging his expulsion in the courts.
Masvingo Zanu PF Provincial Chairperson, Paradzai Chakona said the primary elections went smoothly adding his party was ready for the by-election.
“The elections to replace Bhasikiti ended well and we congratulate the winner and ask everyone else to rally behind the winner,” said Chakona.
“This was an important preparation ahead of the by elections which have been set for September this year,” added Chakona.
Meanwhile, Jusibee Omar was disqualified from the race under unclear circumstances, throwing his short term political ambitions into disarray.politics
