ZANU PF spokesperson, Ambassador Christopher Mutsvangwa has said the just-ended by-elections’ results are “proof” that the people who attended opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) rallies during pre-election campaigns did so for entertainment.
Mutsvangwa speaks after the CCC clinched most of the National Assembly and Local Government seats that were vacant.
The ruling party, however, says it is relieved by the results since it managed to snatch 2 seats that historically belonged to the opposition and retained those it won in 2018.
Out of the 28 parliamentary seats that were up for grabs, 20 were won by the opposition MDC Alliance in 2018 of which 18 fell vacant by recalls (by MDC-T), 2 by death.
Of the 28 Parliamentary seats, ZANU PF won 7 in 2018 of which 5 fell vacant by death, 1 by a recall and 1 by resignation.
The remaining 1 was won by the National Patriotic Front and it fell vacant by death. Watch the video below for more:
