Cue out: “…look for votes.”//
Mutungwanda, however, disputed the polls accusing a section of security personnel
of interfering in the primaries.
//Cue in: “I have not accepted…
Cue out: “…everybody can.”//
However, there were was a standstill between candidates and voters
for the positions of councillors for the central division.
Supporters of Saddam Kakaire and Moses Kaputhu who were contesting for councillor Nyakatozi central division, accused their rival candidate
Musenene Ukash Swaibu of conspiring with polling officials to allow non-party
members to participate in the exercise and allowed double voting.
They also accused the officials of not counting some of the voters at Nyakatozi,
central division station.
However, Swaibu accused his rivals of trying to delay the
declaration of results.
//Cue in: “Candidates are the….
Cue out: “…and cause a commotion.”//
The NRM Central Division Chairperson Gideon Black hailed the exercise as
largely peaceful. He, however, said that the party will carry out
investigations into the complaints they registered from the voters and
