Khupe’s party guns for Kwekwe central seat

By Thabiso Mdhluli

MDC-T interim president Thokozani Khupe is leaving no stone unturned to win the Kwekwe central constituency in the coming by-elections.

The party is fielding former Kwekwe City Councillor Mbekezeli Ndlovu who says is known for making concrete promises to the electorate “unlike other candidates”.

Ndlovu served as Kwekwe City Councillor for two terms before he was voted out in the 2018 elections.

He, however, believes he can bounce back as a parliamentarian. Ndlovu is going to face off with MDC Alliance’s Judith Tobaiwa and a Zanu-PF candidate, although other parties and independent candidates may also throw some names into the ring once the dates have been proclaimed.

Zanu-PF is yet to get a candidate after its primary elections were suspended following a violence outbreak. The polls were pitting 2018 losing parliamentary candidate Kandross Mugabe and gold dealer Energy Ncube.

“It’s true that I am going to represent the MDC-T in the upcoming by elections for Kwekwe Central,” Ndlovu said in an interview.

He promised to be a listening leader once elected. Ndlovu said representation goes beyond an individual.

“Once voted by people, your visibility to them is very important regardless of rich or poor, take their concerns seriously, don’t give false promises,” the former Councillor said.

“I will make sure l listen to everyone regardless of political affiliation, and will be free to associate with everybody rich or poor. I know the campaign will be gruelling and a tall order but I believe I have the trust of the people of Kwekwe going into the by-election.”

The Kwekwe central constituency seat fell vacant following the death of Masango Matambanadzo of the National Patriotic Front in July this year. – Zimbabwe Voice
