Hon Moyo polled 110 votes against 108 votes garnered by former MP Paul
Themba Nyathi of the Arthur Mutambara-led formation.
Zanu PF MPs were backing Themba Nyathi, but they were left in shock after
110 MPs voted for the MDC candidate. The MDC had 99 MPs in the house and
permutations had been made that Nyathi would be the automatic winner.
But democracy had other ideas!
The MDC staved off the early morning arrest of two MPs, Hon Shuah Mudiwa
(Mutare West) and Eliah Jembere (Epworth) to assert its dominance in the
Lower House. Hon Mudiwa was later released and he later attended Parliament
in time to teach Zanu PF MPs a lesson. But Jembere is still in the custody
of the police and the charges he is facing remain unknown.
The MDC is in charge. We are in control. The people’s project is on course!
