Muzarabani North legislator and Energy Minister Zhemu Soda (ZANU PF)is sweating after United Family International Church (UFIC) leader Emmauel Makandiwa’s brother Geshon showed interest to unseat Soda.
According to ZANU PF leadership Makandiwa is promising to give Soda a headache.
“Makandiwa has shown his interest to get the Muzarabani North seat and that is a headache for Soda who is praying that President Emmerson Mnangagwa fights in his corner,” the source said.
Although Makandiwa has been in the structures and has been trying to contest before without success it is alleged that his support base has grown and he has the blessing of provincial leadership.
Mashonaland Central is a ZANU PF stronghold but is slowly weakening due to factionalism with the opposition having been penetrating Muzarabani in a bid to close the gap ahead of the 2023 elections.
