Mnangangwa’s nephew ‘rigs’ election win

President ED Mnangagwa’s nephew and ZANU-PF aspiring candidate for Harare South constituency, Tongai Mnangagwa has vehemently denied rigging in the just ended shambolic Zanu Pf primary elections.

His rival, war vets spokesperson Douglas Mahiya has been breathing fire over Tongai, whom he believes imposed himself as a candidate as he was not in the party’s district structures for 5 years.

Tongai Mnangagwa initially had his CV rejected by the Zanu-PF elections directorate only to surface again. Tongai believes he deserved the victory and he did not manipulate the elections process.

“Every election has a winner and a loser and in this regard, i am the ultimate winner in the Harare South constituency. People should accept the outcome and not try to accuse me of manipulating the vote or favoritism when it is the electorate which made its choice,” he said.

In the full list of results released by the state media on Thursday, Harare South is yet to be announced revealing that all is not well in the constituency.

Tongai says Mahiya’s claims are baseless as he has been helping out the disadvantaged people in the constituency through Tonganyika Trust several years ago and that the same organisation is helping other communities across the country.

Mahiya was not available for comment at the time of going to press. – OpenParly
