Those sending messages to my inbox I would like to let you know that our primary election in Kuwadzana East was stopped by the so called Vanguard youths led by their leader who was my opponent in the election.

 I would like to thank those who turned up for remaining steadfast and vigilant and resisting provocation from a group of 30 or so youths bused into the Constituency to disrupt the party process. The same group disrupted our consensus process a week ago. MDC is a Democratic Party and has no room for violence or subversion of the people’s will. 

I hope the party will look into this matter seriously as my safety is now a matter of concern. I am a father of three kids apart from being a politician and the safety of my family takes precedence over anything else. Chalton Hwende
