<vote /> Members of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) in Norton have thrown their weight behind independent candidate, Temba Mliswa ahead of the forthcoming parliamentary by-elections to replace Christopher Mutsvangwa.

About 200 Norton-based war veterans yesterday met at Vimbai Primary School and endorsed Mliswa as their preferred candidate, but some residents have dismissed him as a foreigner and expressed doubts over his independence.

War veterans’ Norton district chairperson, Joseph Chinyangari, confirmed the development,

By expelling our leadership, Zanu-PF has made it clear that they have nothing to do with us and like wise, we have nothing to do with them from henceforth … We unanimously agreed to back Mliswa against any Zanu PF candidate.

Zanu PF is yet to hold primaries to choose a candidate for the by-elections, whose dates are also still to be anounced.

Meanwhile, Mliswa has accused Zanu PF of defacing his campaign posters in the town.
