Story by Tichaona Kurewa

THE electorate in Binga North says it will vote for development-oriented and listening candidates, come Saturday.

Binga has massive potential in areas such as tourism, fisheries, farming, and cross-border trading that need to be unlocked to transform people’s lives in the district.

The electorate is alive to this reality as they go into a by-election on Saturday and have vowed to vote for a representative who will transform the economy of the district.

An electorate said, “In the past, we have seen candidates who just want to be in parliament and forget about the voters, this time we will vote for a person who shares our values, and aspirations. We want someone who listens to our problems and challenges and brings solutions. We want a candidate who understands development and sees to it that it comes to us.”

“We want a candidate who will help fix our roads and other developments in this area. This district is endowed with natural resources such as fish, tourism sites and others. So, we want a candidate who will see to it that people benefit from these through various empowerment initiatives,” said another electorate.

Cde Chineka Muchimba of ZANU PF and the duo Ms Judith Sibanda and Prince Dubeko Sibanda from the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) will battle it out to represent Binga North in parliament.

This news crew caught up with two of the candidates who shared their vision for the area.

Mr Muchimba said, “Like any other district, Binga has some challenges that I’m going to address these include roads, hospital mortuary. During my tenure, I will also see to it that the civil registry offices are completed and people are obtaining vital documents closer home. I will also see to it that the technical college has all the necessary resources as well as all courses that may be required to transform this area. I will also ensure that fisheries projects in the district are further enhanced to benefit communities.”

“I will push for laws and policies that promote and protect women in this environment so that they leave comfortable. Binga has been neglected for a long time hence there is more that needs to be done in terms of roads, and the provision of clean and safe water. I want to see to it that these services are made available to the people of Binga North within the next five years,” Ms Sibanda said.

Nine by-elections are slated for the 9th of December to fill vacancies created by the recall of CCC legislators by the party’s Interim Secretary General, Sengezo Tshabangu.
