Norton Legislator Temba Mliswa has vowed to continue spearheading developmental programs in his constituency shunning petty politicking as his ZANU PF rival Chris Mutsvangwa has resorted to doing.
Mutsvangwa recently donated various foodstuffs such as maize-meal and meat for various constituencies in Norton with people gathering to cook and eat in Jinx Town and Sandringham among other places.
However Mr Mliswa has scoffed at the antics by Mutsvangwa saying that does not move him and he will continue with real developmental issues.
“I’m still a seating member of Parliament for Norton and will continue doing my duty without resorting to cheap politics”
“Currently I’m focusing on the issue of road construction, borehole construction and having electricity brought to the people of Kingsdale who also don’t have title deeds for the houses they have built”
“Mutsvangwa is doing what he is doing but that does not worry me.”
“He has chosen to seek votes by buying people groceries and all that but I’m not that type of a politician, indulging in petty politicking antics, I will continues doing role,” he said.
Mliswa has been spearheading the construction of roads in Kingsdale whilst he also recently instituted a push to have the residents granted title deeds.
In Jinx Town the combative legislator has also been pushing for the creation of a neighbourhood watch committee to deal with the issue of crime of stock.
Mutsvangwa, who is also the Special Advisor to the President, has recently resurfaced to contest in Norton despite initially losing to Mr Mutendereki during the ZANU-PF primaries.
However his return has stirred a hornet’s nest in the party as various voters are questioning the shady move by the party’s Commissariat to have a legitimate winner drop out.
