Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Harare Bu­reau

NEWLY-ELECTED Nor­ton MP, Mr Temba Mliswa was yes­ter­day sworn in by Clerk of Par­lia­ment, Mr Kennedy Chokuda in the Na­tional Assem­bly.

Mr Mliswa, who con­tested as an in­de­pen­dent can­di­date, won the con­stituency beat­ing Zanu-PF can­di­date, Cde Ron­ald Chind­edza and Mr David Choga of the Na­tional Con­sti­tu­tional Assem­bly in a by-elec­tion held last week­end.

The for­mer Zanu PF Mashona­land West pro­vin­cial chair­per­son gar­nered 8 927 while Cde Chind­edza got 6 192 with Mr Choga se­cur­ing 89, paving way for Mr Mliswa to clinch the seat.

The seat fell va­cant fol­low­ing the ex­pul­sion of Mr Christo­pher Mutsvangwa after he con­tin­ued to de­nounce Zanu-PF lead­er­ship.

Deputy Speaker of the Na­tional Assem­bly Cde Ma­bel Chi­nomona di­rected Mr Chokuda to ad­min­is­ter oath of of­fice in terms of the Con­sti­tu­tion.

Mr Mliswa took his oath amid cheers from MDC-T leg­is­la­tors .
