Former MDC MP Joins CCC Ahead Of August By-elections

A former Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) legislator for Gokwe-Kabuyuni, Costin Muguti, is seeking re-election under the opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) ahead of the forthcoming by-elections slated for August 27, 2022.

The former MP contested and won the seat in 2008 after he garnered 7 234 votes against ZANU PF’s now late candidate Leonard Chikomba, who polled 7 156.

In 2013, Muguti lost the election to Chikomba.

Muguti filed his papers at the nomination court last Friday at the Gweru Magistrates Court.

ZANU PF’s Spencer Tshuma also successfully filed his nomination papers.

Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) Midlands provincial elections officer Dorcas Mpofu presided over the nomination process.

The seat fell vacant following the death of Chikomba on May 28, 2022, in a car accident 20km from his rural home along Gokwe-Chitekete Road.

He was coming from a ZANU PF provincial coordinating committee meeting in Gweru.

He was 67.

Biblicaly when Judas realised what he had done he went and returned the 30 pieces of silver and hanged himself. Mwonzora should apologise and quit politics for him to save face thats all we ask of him

Not necessary @greyhora. Nzvonyora has already committed hara kiri politically. What's left is burial after the 2023 plebiscite. He is no longer of any consequence in political affairs of Zimbabwe. Note that by deciding not to field any candidates for any by-election between now and 2023 he is already saving himself the embarrassment of losing
