President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s son, Kudakwashe David, has won the ticket to stand as a Zanu PF youth quota candidate in the Midlands province, according to the ruling party’s national political commissar, Mike Bimha. The announcement was made yesterday, but Bimha stressed that the results were still subject to scrutiny.

Kudakwashe Mnangagwa is one of 10 youths who will represent Zanu PF under the youth quota system. Other candidates announced include Mutusha Munashe (Bulawayo), Luckmore Gapa and Stanley Sakupwaya (Harare), Emmerson Raradza (Mashonaland Central), Tawanda Mudowo (Mashonaland East), and Ziyambi Mutsawashe (Mashonaland West). In Masvingo, the ruling party will be represented by Naledi Maunganidze, and Thubelihle Ncube (Matabeleland North), while Tinashe Mushipe will stand for Zanu PF in Matabeleland South.

Last year, Kudakwashe Mnangagwa submitted his curriculum vitae to contest for a top post in the Zanu PF national youth leadership, but later withdrew from the race, paving the way for Gutu West MP John Paradza to be elected deputy youth secretary.

Bimha also confirmed the winners of other constituencies where primary elections re-runs were held. Epraim Fundukwa (Churu), Martin Matinyanya (Mbare), Mercy Dinha (Zvimba West), and Flora Buka (Gokwe Nembudziya) were all confirmed as having won tickets to represent the party in the July or August elections.

However, Bimha announced that there will no longer be a re-run in Insiza South this weekend, following the withdrawal of Andrew Langa for purposes of stability. With Kudakwashe Mnangagwa’s win, questions are being raised about the extent of the president’s influence in the country and whether the state has been captured by the Mnangagwa family. This development is likely to fuel further speculation and debate in the coming days.
