Hurungwe- Former Mashonaland West provincial governor Peter Chanetsa will face deputy minister of Regional Integration and International Cooperation Reuben Marumahoko in Zanu PF primaries.

Chanetsa is the Member of Parliament for Hurungwe North covering mostly rural areas under Chiefs Kazangarare and Chundu while Marumahoko is Hurungwe senator.

Party insiders revealed that although two other candidates indentified as war veteran Karenga and little known A. Gandawa submitted their papers, the battle is set for the two.

‘’Chanetsa has hardly done anything for his constituency preferring to stay in Harare while Marumahoko took advantage of his absence and was visible. At one time he assisted the bereaved families of five farmers who perished during an accident near Chinhoyi in early April’’ said a party insider at Chibara.

Marumahoko was the high ranking Government official during burial of late Samuel Chenjerai Marufu who is President Robert Mugabe’s father-in law. Marufu passed on 17 April this year.

In August last year Marumahoko defended the eviction of over 300 villagers under Chief Chundu that then acting chief Picture had labelled ‘’mabvakure’’ or aliens.

In Hurungwe East incumbent MP Sarah Mahoka who is the provincial chairlady will face three male aspiring candidates including farmer Antony Zunzanyika, former councilors Misheck Masango and Boswell Rusere who was seconded to Jomic by Zanu PF.

Godfrey Beremauro MP in Hurungwe Central covering Karoi town will fight out with Pelagia Mapfumo and farmer Tsikira.  

However there mixed reactions amid revelations that some names had been dropped by the provincial coordinating committee although it is understood that every CV was accepted but PCC made recommendations that will be forwarded to national party election directorate that will approve names of candidates for party primaries.

In Magunje Franco Ndambakuwa faces challenges from Muduna, Keith Guzha and Godfrey Gandawa among others.

Temba Mliswa submitted his CV in Hurungwe West.

Elsewhere Zanu PF provincial chairman John Mafa will fight it out with national political commissar and minister of information Webster Shamu in Chegutu East.
