President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s special Advisor Christopher Mutsvangwa had lost the primary election to Langton Mutendereki. Mutsvangwa challenged the result and blamed the police of interfering in the primary elections.

Mutsvangwa said Mnangagwa may lose this year’s presidential election claiming that large numbers of Zanu-PF supporters had been disenfranchised which he blamed on Zanu-PF Political Commissar, Lieutenant-General (retired) Engelbert Rugeje.

Dexter Nduna who is in prison for discharging a firearm on his own during the primary elections held in Chegutu West. He had been announced as the winner in the constituency but is set to lose the seat after being arrested .
