CCC Aspiring Councillor Says Zim Crisis Inspired Him To Join Politics

CCC candidate for Ward 14 council by-election in Bulilima District, Ephraim Moyo, said that the suffering of Zimbabwean citizens in countries such as South Africa and Botswana inspired him to run for political office in order to change their fortunes.

Moyo will face ZANU PF candidate Experience Dube and ZAPU candidate Linos Moyo in the by-election set for 3 September 2022.

In an interview with CITE’s Senzeni Ncube, Moyo said the suffering being experienced by Zimbabweans in the diaspora made him contest in the upcoming by-elections. He said:

I saw the suffering of our children in other countries as I also worked in Botswana and South Africa, you find a teacher or a lawyer doing menial works such as gardening in other countries, this pushed me to join hands with others and help in this situation so that we can change the government maybe the new one will hear the cries of the people.

Moyo expressed confidence in his chances of winning the council seat even though he conceded that most villagers are afraid to openly support the opposition CCC due to intimidation.

Another CCC candidate, Ephraim Moyo, who is contesting for the vacant Ward 1 seat said resource constraints have hampered his campaign. Moyo said:

The challenge that we have is economic challenges, people want to help us but they have no money, most of the time we use bicycles to travel and when there is someone with a car, they also assist but again the challenge becomes fuel because our ward is big.

He said if he is elected, he will work on finishing some projects in the ward that include a clinic and a police base. Said Moyo:

The first thing is to respect the people and do what they love and fulfil their wishes. Secondly, there are projects which were left incomplete, there is a clinic that is still incomplete and we are not sure where the challenge is.

The other one is to finish the police base because we have a high crime rate in our village, so those are the projects that I am hoping to fulfil.

I wish to have a vocational skills school where children can learn skills like carpentry, building, sewing, and cooking because I am a carpenter myself so that is what I am hoping to see in my community.
