Mliswa sworn in
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 .
