Out of 1311 people who voted, Biti got 567 votes (43%) and second in the poll was the youthful Information Communication Technology (ICT) Minister Nelson Chamisa (MDC-T) who got 245 votes (19%) of the total votes cast.

The Minister of Education, Sport, Arts and Culture senator David Coltart (MDC-N) was third with 185 votes (14%) followed closely in fourth by the Minister of Tourism and Hospitality Industry, Walter Mzembi from Zanu PF.

Biti is credited with turning around an economy that had gone to the dogs under Zanu PF while Chamisa won plaudits for internet usage in Zimbabwe having grown by over 165% over the last three years according to most statistics. Over three years ago he proposed and had implemented, a policy to waive duty on imported ICT products.

Senator Coltart meanwhile picked up the pieces from a collapsed education system and has been credited with reviving it using limited resources. His hard work, humility and accessibility has endeared him to many Zimbabweans.
