THE ruling Zanu-PF has nominated its member Eleven Kambizi to fill the Senate seat left vacant after the death of national hero and former Lands, Agriculture, Water and Rural Resettlement Minister Perrance Shiri in July.
The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) gazetted Zanu PF’s choice of Shiri’s replacement yesterday.
Any voter wishing to object to the nomination of Kambizi must lodge such objection, in writing, with the chief elections officer, at Mahachi Quantum Building, Corner Kaguvi Street and Jason Moyo Avenue, Harare, or post them to Private Bag 7782, Causeway, within 14 days.
In her official notification of the death of Shiri, ZEC chairperson Justice Priscilla Chigumba noted that the vacancy was among the party list members of the Senate.
This means that the party that won the seat in the last election keeps the seat and can nominate a replacement.
Air Chief Marshal Shiri (Rtd) died of Covid-19 and was buried at the National Heroes Acre.
He was 65.
