Mwonzora-led MDC Alliance Won't Contest In Any By-election

Mwonzora-led MDC Alliance Won't Contest In Any By-election

The opposition MDC Alliance led by Senator Douglas Mwonzora has resolved not to contest any by-elections saying it would only contest the 2023 general elections.

MDC Alliance which failed to register a single win in the just ended by-elections has not fielded a candidate for the Masvingo West, ward 21, by-election set for June 25.

The seat fell vacant following the death of ZANU PF councillor Tinago Mupinga on March 24.

The three candidates nominated for the June 25 by-elections are ZANU PF’s Chenjerai Mumbire, Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC)‘s Onias Mawarire and Sister Nhando, an independent candidate.

Zimbabwe Electoral Commission(ZEC) chief elections officer Utoile Silaigwana confirmed the by-election.

Political analysts told NewsDay that Mwonzora’s party was avoiding further embarrassment.

Political analyst Rejoice Ngwenya said:

If they are going by empirical evidence of past performance, their instinct is that they are not fielding until they get their numbers correct. But that is the wrong strategy because if you don’t contest then you are exposing your weaknesses.

Another political analyst Effie Ncube echoed Ngwenya’s sentiments saying MDC Alliance was no match to the Nelson Chamisa-led CCC party adding that people opposed to the ruling ZANU PF had moved from MDC to CCC.

it costs USD 1.50 from Glenview to Msasa
it cost a USD$1.00 from town to Msasa
$2.50 to work and $2.50 from work to home = $5.00.
$5 a day times 6 days a week = $30/per week
A month has 4 weeks = $120 for transport only
Salary is🥜 $100 USD + 🥜Rtgs 25000
Rtgs 25000 ÷ by rate 450 = USD55 so our salary is USD$ 155 altogether
$155 - $120 transport = USD $35😭😭😭
pa$35 ipapo ndipo pachabva $40 yerent, ndipo pachabva $$40 yemwana wechikoro, ndipo pachabva $40 yegrocery, ndipo pachabvazve yekuterera magetsi $10, yekanzuru yemvura $5 Saka tiri kurarama tiri paminus - or more. imagine. something must be done. if not so uuuuuimmmm😭😭😭😭😭😭

Admission of guilt.
Ingobuda pachena Nzvonyora kuti danga harina mombe. If you insist on parading your nudity in 2023, then rest assured you will be buried with ignominy. Only a few days ago did some high-ranking MDC-T office holder confide in me that they will be retiring from politics ahead of 2023.

Nzvonyora take heed and bow out gracefully
