via Bulawayo24 NEWS | Jonathan Moyo delivers Tsholotsho to Zanu-PF with massive win 11 June 2015

Professor Jonathan Moyo has delivered Tsholotsho North back to Zanu-PF party for the first time since the death of Vice President Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo.

Moyo recorded a landslide victory receiving 11695 votes while Busani Ncube 91 and Getrude Sibanda 38. In 2013 from Tsholotsho North’s 10,928 valid votes cast MDC-T got 4,874 and Zanu-PF got 4,646 votes.

Tsholotsho North constituency returns to Zanu-PF after 20 years.

The seat was last held by Cain Mathema before it was split into two constituencies – Tsholotsho North and South.

The seat fell vacant following the expulsion of Roselyn Nkomo from parliament by MDC-T.

Prof Moyo said on Twitter: “I want to thank President Mugabe, our two Vice Presidents, the NPC, party colleagues, my family, twimbos  and above all Tsholotsho North voters for the landslide!”

Speaking to Journalists soon after voting, Professor Moyo said he was excited about the by-elections saying he felt liberated from the disaster of the 2013 harmonised elections.

“The constituency is returning back to the party for the first time since the death of Vice President Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo,” he said.

    The debacles in these by-elections have clearly vindicated that it was the right idea to not take part in these kind of shenanigans. Taking part just endorses Zanu thuggish behaviour.

    If nothing is done to make the Zim elections compliant with the basic rules of elections, then there is no point participating in the 2018 one.

    Other countries like Zambia now make elections a breeze while in ours hordes of people continue to be turned away, all rules are broken before the election and nothing is done, rules broken on election day and nothing is done.

    The impunity is just beyond imagination. As long as these people know they can get away with it they will always do it, the current system allows them to do it.

    Now Moyo gets a staggering 11,695 votes – where did the votes come from? He was going to win no doubt about it but 11,695? Give me a break.

    If anything, these results thus far, play right into the hands of the MDC. ZANU PF would have been wiser to at least let some of the ‘opposition’ which contested in this election win a seat here and there, but NO, they had to win them ALL by a “LANDSLIDE”!!

    There is not an ounce of credibility to this hollow ZANU PF victory, but then again, since when did that matter to anyone?? ALUTA Continua!!

    In 1986 50% of the political prisoners in Chikurubi Maximum were there for opposing the ZANU candidate for Tjolotlo in the 1985 election. ZANu wins elections through fear.
