Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services permanent secretary Nick Mangwana posted the election results on his Twitter account yesterday.

The Mutoko North by-election was triggered by the election of Mable Chinomona as the president of the Senate.

It is the first by-election since the July 30 elections in which Zanu PF won by a two thirds majority.

Elections watchdog, the Zimbabwe Election Support Network claims that the poll recorded a higher number of assisted voters. DailyNews
