Published: 16 July 2017 (263 Views)
Zanu-PF's Brown Ndlovu is the newly elected National Assembly member for Chiwundura Constituency after a landslide victory in the by-election held in the constituency yesterday.

Ndlovu polled 9426 votes, while his nearest rival, Takudzwa Guzete of NCA got just 445 votes.

The other two contestants, Brighton Mudzvity of Free Zim Congress and Webster Zulu of the Progressive Democrats of Zimbabwe polled 145 and 118 votes respectively.

The Chiwundura seat fell vacant following the death Zanu-PF's Kizito Chivamba in April this year.

Voting started at 7.00hrs and closed at 19.00hrs yesterday, and the process was generally peacefully and fast as a voter would not last more than five minutes to complete the whole process.

ZEC Midlands Provincial Elections Officer, Mrs Dorcas Mpofu, said the election started smoothly without any hiccups and expressed satisfaction with the entire voting process.

Voters described the by-election as peaceful although some raised concern over distances they were walking to the polling stations and names that were not appearing on the voters roll.
