Zanu-PF’s Nokuthula Matsikenyere wins Chimanimani West by-elections

Zanu-PF has won the Chimanimani West by-elections. The votes have been counted and announced this morning.

  • Zanu-PF : 11,074
  • Independent : 3,018
  • Renewal Democrats of Zimbabwe: 183
  • National Constitutional Assembly: 171
  • Spoiled: 159

This effectively makes Nokuthula Matsikenyere the new legislator for Chimanimani West, replacing former Zanu PF legislator Munacho Mutezo who was expelled from Zanu-PF for being Zimbabwe People First member while still a Zanu PF MP. Mutezo was initially suspended and then eventually expelled in August this year.

Zanu-PF was been accused of vote buying and voter intimidation in the run-up to the by-election.
