Today, 8 April 2017, there is a by election in Mwenezi East constituency following the death of Joshua Moyo in December 2016.

BY HEAL ZIMBABWE TRUST

Three candidates are vying for the Parliamentary seat and these are Joosbi Omar of the Zanu PF party, Welcome Masuku of the National Constitution Assembly (NCA) and Turner Muhango of the Free Zimbabwe Congress. Kudakwashe Bhasikiti of the Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF) withdrew from the by election citing intimidation of his supporters and vote-buying by Zanu PF.

All these efforts are targeted at monitoring the electoral process to see whether it is held in a free, fair, transparent and peaceful manner.
