ZANU-PF celebrates by-election win in Gutu West
The ruling ZANU-PF party is beaming with pride after securing another decisive victory in a parliamentary by-election. This past Saturday, the party’s candidate John Paradza handily won the contest to represent Gutu West constituency.
Official results show Paradza polled 12,147 votes, far ahead of his closest competitor Sebastian Mudzingwa an independent candidate who managed around 1,775 ballots. Ephraim Morudu of the CCC opposition could only muster 1,258 votes. The remaining contenders trailed even further behind.
Political figures within ZANU-PF, such as secretary for commissariat Mike Bimha, expressed jubilation at the lopsided outcome. Bimha stated the party has a proven track record of delivering independence and development across Zimbabwe. He highlighted Gutu West’s historical support for the revolutionary movement. Other key figures on the campaign trail also received praise, including Vice President Mohadi and First Lady Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa.
According to Bimha, the commanding margin of victory validates that ZANU-PF policies resonate strongly with the populace. He urged other provinces to emulate Masvingo’s cohesive team effort. Bimha also showered kudos on the extensive grassroots mobilization by wings like the youth league during this intense by-election period.
So in the end, ZANU-PF partisans left Saturday’s polls bursting with confidence. They see the Gutu West result as the latest demonstration that the party remains Zimbabwe’s dominant political force for the foreseeable future. Supporters will no doubt be anticipating many more triumphs in by-elections elections down the road.
