Controversial politician and former Deputy Minister of Information, Publicity & Broadcasting Services Energy Mutodi has been duly elected Member of the Masvingo Provincial Executive.
Mutodi with 583 votes was going against Josiah Sithole with 287 Samson Marecha with 158 Togarepi Dzingo with 132 in the provincial elections held on Tuesday.
Mutodi was fired from his job as deputy minister by Emmerson Mnangagwa on 20 May 2020.
In the 2013 July 31 harmonized elections, he contested during the ZANU PF primaries to be selected as the ZANU PF member to contest for the Goromonzi South Constituency. However he was defeated by Beatrice Nyamupinga who was selected to be the Member of Parliament during the coveted July 31 elections.
Meanwhile, ZANU PF has failed to release official results for the provincial elections held on Tuesday amid fears the announcement would further destabilise the already fractured party ahead of the 2023 harmonised elections.
