Judge tells ZANU-PF candidates for Harare East to fight it out

High Court Judge Chinembiri  Bhunu has told two Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front candidates vying for the Harare East seat in the National Assembly to fight it out in the 10 June by-elections. Terrence Mukupe had won the primary elections for the seat beating Mavis Gumbo, but on nomination day, party Secretary for Administration Ignatius Chombo wrote to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission that the party had withdrawn his candidature. His nomination papers had already been accepted.  “Since both candidates’ papers were in order the nomination officer had no option but to accept both candidates as duly nominated and leave the party to sort out its own mess and controversy according to its own legal instruments and devices,” Justice Bhunu said.
