THE Zimbabwe Electoral Commission has confirmed that all centres with by-elections opened on time at 7AM and voters were already queuing to cast votes.
Voting is taking place in eight constituencies all in the Matabeleland region after Mabvuku-Tafara candidate Cde Scot Sakupwanya, was duly declared a winner.
Nketa, Cowdray Park, Bulawayo South, Lobengula-Magwegwe, and Mpopoma-Mzilikazi seats are up for grabs. The contest is mainly between Zanu-PF and CCC. While CCC had fielded double candidates the courts barred those who were initially recalled from Parliament before they filed nomination papers under the same name.
