MWENEZI-A Zanu PF Masvingo province secretary for lands Joosbi Omar has won the right to represent the party in Mwenezi East by-election after trouncing 12 other aspiring candidates last Tuesday.
Omar polled 5 901 against Marvelous Chipfumuro who came second with 1 434 while Patrick Mandebvu came third with 1 338 votes. The seat fell vacant after the death of Joshua Moyo in December last year.
The elections were supervised by Politiburo member July Moyo who expressed satisfaction at the level of discipline exhibited by the candidates.
The nomination court will sit in Masvingo at the Provincial Magistrate Courts this Friday to select candidates for the March 8 by-election.news
