Tongues have just began wagging from members of the Mwenezi East Constituency as they shake government to put everything in place so that elections are done in the area.
“We really don
t know why we are being left out of the equation. How can we go for a year without a Member of Parliament? Whatever the reason, all we know is that they dont want development to take place in our native land.” Said one villager who only identified himself as Chenjerai.
“We are lagging behind. We don
t have a Member of Parliament. We plead with the authorities to make sure that elections are done.” Said Maxwell Muzvidziwa who is a local businessman in the area. Mwenezi East Constituency has gone without a Member of Parliament for almost a year now following the death of Joosbor Omar who died on the 24th of October last year. A snap survey by Hevoi FM News has revealed that ZANU PFs Master Makope is tipped to grab a resounding victory if elections are to be done. However, apparently the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission Provincial Elections Officer Zex Zirabada Pudurai told Hevoi FM News that everything has been brought to a halt due to the global pandemic
