    MASVINGO - Two independent and four party sponsored candidates will battle it out in the vacant Bikita West constituency in January next year after successful nominations on Friday last week.
    The nominations were done at the Masvingo Magistrate courts. Beauty Chabaya of Zanu PF, Kudakwashe Gopo from the new kid on the block Zimbabwe People First, Mudorch Chivasa National Constitutional Assembly and Tanyaradzwa Mugumbo of Progressive Democracy of Zimbabwe are going to contest under their respective parties.
    Heya Shoko, former MP for the constituency between 2008 and 2013 under MDCT and Innocent Muzvimbiri, a salaries administrator with Bikita Minerals will stand as independent candidates. For the candidates to qualify they had to be nominated by seven registered voters from the constituency and pay a non-refundable fee of $50 according to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission officials who presided over the exercise.
    The Bikita West constituency fell vacant after the incarceration of former Central Bank governor special advisor Munyaradzi Kereke in June this year for raping his minor cousin.news
