Jane Mlambo| The MDC has written to ZEC Chief Election Officer Utoile Silaigwana complaining over the disqualification of their candidate for Umzingwane ward 14 candidate whose name was allegedly changed to another ward.

According to MDC Secretary General Charlton Hwende, Nkululeko Sithole was the party’s ward election candidate in the 2018 elections but his name has since been moved to another ward.

“It has come to our attention that our candidate for Umzingwane ward 14 Nkululeko Sithole, Identification Number *** has been discovered to be from another ward,notwithstanding that he stood for the same ward 14 in 2018.

“The officers at Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) have now indicated that they discovered he belongs to another ward. One of the many ways that ZEC seeks to assist Zanu PF in these elections,” said Hwende.
