Mutsvangwa to challenge Norton election results

Special advisor to the President, Cde Christopher Mutsvangwa has rubbished results of the just ended Zanu PF Norton primary elections saying the process was disorganized and infiltrated by G40 elements adding that he will not allow the people of Norton to be taken for granted.
Mutsvangwa says Norton is a very smart constituency which when he was fired by former President Robert Mugabe repaid him by voting for an independent candidate.
Speaking to journalists on occasion of the World Press Freedom Day, Mutsvangwa dismissed his defeat as a calculated move meant to ensure Temba Mliswa remains in Parliament, adding that the latter was a Jonathan Moyo in the making.
“There are 30 000 people in Norton who are supposed to vote, a result is announced early this morning, less than 4000 people voted, all the people were being turned away because Temba Mliswa wants a weak candidate and its on record that sentiments are if I win he will not survive in July.
“These are the same people you want to champion saying they fight Zanu PF, that man is just a charlatan and a fascist deliberately working to ensure Norton will just not chose a competent candidate,” he said.
Mutsvangwa described Mliswa (current Norton legislator) as a putative fascist charlatan who bribed all the Norton police stations culminating in voters being turned away.
Unverified reports say Mutsvangwa lost the election by a far margin, polling a measly 197 votes against Mutendereki’s  13 349 thereby suffering the same fate as other Zanu PF bigwigs such as Oppah Muchinguri, Mike Bimha and many others.
