Confirmed reports indicate that the opposition MDC has walloped ZANU PF in the by-election for Mutasa constituency’s ward 10.

The election was held on Saturday and MDC candidate Rosemary Tanyaradzwa Mukodza won 801 votes, ZANU PF candidate Margaret Tindirika garnered 548 while National Constitutional Assembly candidate Tanyaradzwa Chirimo won 16 votes.

The by-election arose after Frank Chitembwe of the MDC was elected the Mutasa Ward 10 Councillor in July 2018, but lost the seat after he got convicted and jailed for public violence after he participated in the violent #ShutDownZimbabwe protests of mid-January.
