    GWERU – The late MDC T iconic leader's grand idea of choosing party candidates through consensus rather than primary elections has collapsed like a deck of cards as all constituencies and wards except one in Gweru are going to see fierce contests, The Mirror has learned.
    MDC-T Midlands spokesperson, Munyaradzi Mutandavari said Mkoba MP Amos Chibaya is the only Gweru candidate who will not go into primaries while the rest of the wards and constituencies have been three and five candidates.
    Some 58 CVs have been submitted for 14 wards by people interested in participating in primaries.
     "In Gweru only one candidate is uncontested and its MP Chibaya of Mkoba Constituency. Albert Chadoka initially wanted the position but maybe he changed his mind because he submitted his CV for a provincial government post.
    "For Gweru Urban we received four CVs from the sitting MP Cecil Zvazvai, Brian Dube prominent lawyer (current information and publicity), Blessed Mishi an activist and Kenneth Sithole ward 4 Councillor (district chairperson).
    We will be submitting the CVs to the national council to decide, they may use seniority on selections but definitely we will have primary elections," said Mutandavari
    Mutandavari also said that the dates for primaries will be decided at national level. local news
