Vincent Tsvangirai Wins Glen View South Constituency
Vincent Tsvangirai, son to the late MDC founding President has been selected as the party’s candidate for Glen View South Constituency after winning the primary elections which were held this afternoon, TechMag.Tv has learnt.
Vincent won by more than 100 votes against his closest rival Tahwa, who only managed 62 votes. The Constituency fell vacant after the death of Vimbai Tsvangirai Java, who was the eldest daughter of Dr R. M. Tsvangirai.
The late Hon Vimbai died from injuries she sustained in a horrific car accident between Kwekwe and Kadoma early this year.
The by- elections for Glen View South will be held on the 7th of September 2019.
Speaking soon after the elections, Hon Madzimure, the Sec for Elections in Harare Province said the holding of the primary elections in the Constituency was a clear testimony in democracy in the party.
Harare Provincial Chairperson, Hon Chikombo said that the focus should now be to campaign in order to retain the Constituency.
“This is our stronghold, it’s our Constituency and we need to work extra hard in order to retain and preserve the legacy of our late President, Dr Tsvangirai” said the firebrand Harare Provincial Chairperson.
