Outgoing party VP, Morgen Komichi polled 1 306 with Elias Mudzuri, another outgoing VP, getting a humiliating 51 votes.

In the women’s quota, Karenyi-Kore polled 423 to beat fellow competitors.

Lilian Timveos was came second with 367 votes with former government minister and Zanu PF MP Tracy Mutinhiri scrapping a miserly 31.

Ncube and Biti are former party secretary generals.
