Mliswa hits back at Mutsvangwa




Temba Mliswa

Norton legislator Temba Mliswa has responded to Special Advisor to President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Christopher Mutsvangwa who blamed him for his election loss in the Zanu-PF primary elections.

Mutsvangwa who was defeated in the Norton primaries by Langton Mutendereki accused Mliswa of having infiltrated the ruling Zanu-PF party.

Responding during an interview hosted by Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa on Capitalk FM on Wednesday evening, Mliswa said he was surprised Mutsvangwa attributed his loss to him. Said Mliswa:

I’ve always respected Ambassador Chris Mutsvangwa for his ambassadorial work that he has done for the country and being a war veteran but again there is politics at the end of the day. I’m surprised that he really attributes that loss to me.

I’m not in Zanu-PF, it was a Zanu-PF primary election and I am a Member of Parliament for Norton. He must remember that I was the provincial chairman for Mashonaland West.

I was his chairman, he was also the secretary of information and publicity which I appointed him to because I respected him. I also pushed him to go to the Central Committee because I believed in him.

So why today would I want to be part of the goings on in Zanu-PF. W e now have a winner in Zanu-PF. I’m waiting the winner in MDC
