THE Hurungwe West by-election saga took a new twist yesterday amid allegations that Zanu PF winning candidate Never Keith Guzah withheld details of his previous conviction for motor vehicle theft to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec).

BY NUNURAI JENA

The fraud details emerged after Temba Mliswa, who lost the election after contesting as an independent, applied for nullification of the results citing four electoral irregularities.

According to papers filed under case number EC05/15, Mliswa wrote that besides allegations that Guzah was not a registered voter at the time the Nomination Court sat, the newly-sworn MP also failed to disclose that he was once convicted for theft of a motor vehicle where he was identified as Never Phiri.

Mliswa’s lawyer Dunira Hungwe confirmed the latest exposé in his court papers yesterday.

“Yes, we filed papers for the nullification of the Hurungwe West by-election results and besides the now common cause that Guzah fraudulently refrained from advising the Electoral Commission that he was once convicted under the name of Never Phiri,” Hungwe said.

Pressed to disclose the dates of the conviction and sentence, Hungwe said that would be revealed in court. Hungwe said they also cited massive electoral malpractices that included voter intimidation during the campaign period right up to the day of elections and the politicisation of traditional leaders, which was rampant.

Zec chairperson Justice Ritas Makarau this week admitted that Guzah was not a registered for Hurungwe West and his name appeared on the Magunje voters roll.

  1. ZANU PF iri kumanya 100metres nevanhu vakasungirigwa makumbo pamuti. YOU WILL NEVER WIN AN ELECTION KANA ZANU PF YAKASUNGA VAMWE VARIKUKWIKWIDZA MBIRA DZAKONDO.
    If Guzah was not ZANU PF, ZEC would have nullified his victory. The clear winner is Mliswa in this situation. Chete mitemo yedu yakarerekera divi rimwe chete. MaZimbabwe ose ndinovimba anozviziva. Take for example the speed at which ZEC take in the case of Dr Gono and also former Vice President Mujuru when they said she is not an MP and quickly arranged a by-election etc etc etc etc (realignment of new constitution was rushed to remove Dr Mujuru)
    Remember Animal Farm: “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others”

  2. I knew Never as a rogue from Highfield, but I thought he paid for his misdemeanor when he did jail time..He had other fraud issues that saw him go into self exile in the US.
    Good luck Never

  3. I have known for donkey years that Keith Guzah is not his original name. He changed his name years ago due to his criminal past. During the early to mid 90s he was friends and partner with Wonder Munyanyi an ex- lawyer was was struck of the register now residing in the US. They ran ka company called Keith Neville Guzha Incorporated. Neville for Never. Imbavha iyo!!!

  4. IT WAS A HUGE SURPRISE THAT ZANU PF WOULD BE SO DESPERATE TO NOMINATE KEITH GUZAH WITH HIS FAKE PHD, TO BE THEIR MP. THIS MAN IS A WELL KNOWN CRIMINAL WITH A RECORD AS LONG AS HIS ARM. HOW THE ZANU LEADERSHIP IS NOT AWARE OF THIS BOGGLES THE MIND!!!

    BY THE WAY, IT APPEARS LIKE IF YOU WANT TO APPEASE ZANU, CALL YOURSELF A DOCTOR. I SEE THAT DANIEL SHUMBA IS NOW REFERRED TO AS DR DANIEL SHUMBA. WHAT A SHAME!!!!!

  5. Criminals are easy to control because the moment they want to grow big balls, they are threatned with zandom.

    • You are spot on my brother! Zanu uses CRIMINALS to get away with murder. Its not like they dont know that NEVER PHIRI is a criminal with a record as long as his arm as mentioned by one brother. Zanu knows its easier to use such rogue elements like Never knowing very well that with time they can use their criminal records against them. Remember this is a party that believes in sacrificing members in order to be seen to be working or serious. Those who join Zanu is an act of desperation after failing in all spheres of life including seeking protection for their past deeds but with Zanu you can never be smart. Its an EVIL party for EVIL people!!!!

    • this particular Dr Guzha can not string together two coherent sentences,Chiyangwa anotova nane by far

  6. Never Phiri did not vote because he was not a registered voter.By extension,he could not stand as a member of parliament in a constituency where he is not a registered voter.Mliswa will produce the Government Gazette for the change of name.Mliswa for parliament.

  7. Ah we know these guys he went to Highfield High and disappeares resurfaces as Chiyangwa’s mate in AAG kkkkkkkk mbavha dzese even dzakabva ku hondo changed their names after escaping from jail they went to mozambique then came back as war vets
