Blessing Chebundo the MDC Alliance National Executive Member popular for defeating President Emmerson in two elections in a row has dismally lost the party’s primary elections for Kwekwe Central.

MDC alliance deputy national youth assembly treasurer Judith Tobaiwa won the race with a landslide victory after polling 1 328 votes with Chebundo coming a distant second with 496 votes.

Chebundo defeated Mnangagwa in the 2000 and 2005 elections until ZANU PF moved the now state President to contest in the Chirumhanzi Zivagwe constituency where he won the election.

The Kwekwe constituency seat fell vacant after the death of National Patriotic Front MP Masango Matambanadzo in June this year.

Former Health Minister in the inclusive government also lost as he managed a paltry 43 votes, while Edmore Marongwe got 22 votes.

Last week ZANU PF failed to hold its own primary elections after heavy violence broke out among its members.
