An Independent candidate in the Norton by-election Temba Mliswa has reportedly beaten the Zanu PF candidate Ronald Chindeza with over 2700 votes.
The ruling party candidate got 6192 votes and Mliswa got 8927.
The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) is still to confirm these results but sources confirm that Mliswa has done enough to be the new MP for Norton, a seat that was previously held by Chris Mutsvangwa, who was expelled from Zanu PF.
Last week Saturday the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T) who are boycotting all elections demanding electoral reforms, urged their supporters to vote for Mliswa in the by-election and even mobilised supporters to attend his rallies.
At one key rally, MDC Vice President Nelson Chamisa told Nehanda Radio that they had “mobilised thousands of their supporters to go and support Mliswa”, but riot police with the help of Zanu PF youths came and violently disrupted the rally at Norton Ngoni Stadium.
