After his bruising attack on Movement for Democratic Change leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, Norton constituency legislator Temba Mliswa has declared himself ready to take on political parties in the 2018 Presidential elections.
Addressing hundreds of people who attended Mliswa’s victory celebration rally in Norton on Saturday, the former Hurungwe West legislator who now call himself ‘bhuru mudanga’ loosely translated as a bull in a kraal, stunned people when he announced his intentions to contest the forthcoming presidential elections.
“If I have won Norton against Zanu PF, what else will stop me from winning the presidential election in 2018, I can win the presidential seat and I am going for it,” said Mliswa.
Mliswa challenged President Mugabe vowing to defeat him come 2018 elections.
“I will never lose to Zanu PF, it died on 22 October when I defeated them here in Norton. The party’s two vice presidents came here to address rallies but I defeated them. Mugabe could not come to Norton during the campaign because he knew that I was going to defeat him as well,” he said.
In a thinly veiled attack on the MDC-T leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, Mliswa said opposition parties are no-longer popular than him as proved by the Norton by-election.
“I want to show all these useless political parties that I am the best candidate because I know people love me as they showed it with Norton.
“This country needs a President who works for the people and move the country forward not those who gossip about pictures,” he said.
