BVONDO FACES RESISTANCE


MDC Youth League leader Happymore Chidziva is facing resistance in Highfield West where he wants to be the MP.

Some say Chidziva has no links to the constituency as he is from from Kwekwe.

“We know they are propping up Chidziva who is popularly known as Bvondo to stand as a candidate for Highfield West unopposed but that is not fair. He is actually from Kwekwe and he cannot be imposed on the people of Harare,” said the source.

The MDC is reported to have reserved the Highfield West seat for the youths, to the exclusion of senior party members and former legislators for the constituency.

Violence also rocked the MDC-T consensus meeting in Glen View and Chitungwiza.

Some sitting and aspiring candidates had to flee for  their lives as youths bayed for their blood in chaos riddled meetings. The party has directed party candidates to hold consensus meetings to avoid holding primary elections, a strategy that has been perceived by some as a ploy to impose preferred candidates.

In Glen View North, sitting Legislator Mr Fani Munengami fled the scene while Mrs Vimbai Tsvangirai Java had to be escorted as party supporters protested why she was coming to contest in Glen View South constituency.

Party supporters rapped Mr Chamisa for trying to impose Vimbai, the daughter of founding MDC-T president Mr Morgan Tsvangirai, who succumbed to colon cancer in February this year.

In Zengeza West, a tension-filled consensus meeting was aborted after just 10 minutes after sitting MP Mr Simon Chidhakwa failed to agree with aspiring candidates Messrs Job Sikhala and Rangarirayi Mutingwende.
