Harare West MP Jessie Majome who withdrew from MDC-T’s primary elections citing irregularities has insisted that she is still an independent candidate.
Majome denied claims made by MDC-T National chairperson Morgen Komichi that the party had reached out to her and placed her on the senatorial list to prevent her from leaving the party.
Responding to a question on Twitter, Majome said,
What Sen. Komichi said yesterday is as much news to me as it is to you. I decided to run as an independent candidate for the Harare West National Assembly seat because of on 1 hand the gross irregularities of the party’s primary elections & my desire to represent my community.
The MDC-T primary elections have been chaotic, similar to what happened in the Zanu-PF primary elections.
