BIKITA –
Retired Major General Gibson Kudzai Mashingaidze together with several other party candidates have petitioned Zanu PF over primary elections held recently to find a candidate for Bikita West by-elections which they feel were not free and fair.
Mashingaidze who came fifth in the elections confirmed the move and said that there were irregularities in the primaries won by Beauty Chibaya.
The losing candidates are challenging the election of Chibaya who is now the Zanu PF candidate to take over the seat left by Munyaradzi Kereke who is incarcerated for rape.
"What I can tell you is we have lodged our complaints with the relevant department and this is because there were flaws in the conduct of the primary elections. All losing candidates except Elias Musakwa and Daniel Makusha are pushing for a re- run," said Mashingaidze.
One of the alleged irregularities is that there were three districts that were created from Harare to enable Chibaya to win the elections.
"I am surprised that this woman romped to victory yet she only won in two wards but when the votes were being counted she emerged the winner and only four women ululated," said one losing candidate who refused to be named.
There are also allegations that the outcome of election was stage managed as the winner knew the election date well before and the voters' roll contained only her supporters.
However, Chabaya's campaign manager Chamunoda Taruona rubbished the rigging claims.
"Not many people are happy losers.  That the voters' roll was tampered with are the words of enemies of progress, there was no rigging whatsoever," said Taruona.news
