MDC-T TUMBLES IN MANICALAND, MASVINGO

The Movement for Democratic Change led by Morgan Tsvangirai tumbled in its former strongholds of Manicaland and Masvingo in Wednesday’s elections, plunging the former majority party into turmoil.
The MDC-T said it would mount a court challenge, alleging there were irregularities.
In Manicaland, the party won four seats against Zanu PF’s 22. The MDC-T previously held 20 seats. Zanu PF took all 26 Masvingo seats.
MDC-T, however, swept Bulawayo’s twelve seats and gained 17 of the 26 Matabeleland North and South parliamentary seats. Zanu PF got 8 seats in the two provinces.
Robert Mugabe’s party took all 37 seats in Mashonaland East and Central.
