Zanu PF has retained the Mutoko North parliamentary seat after its candidate Rambidzai Nyabote polled 11 141 against her main challenger Boniface Mushore of the MDC-A who could only manage 1 329 votes.
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
