MUTARE councillor Farai Bhiza (MDC-Alliance) who was acting mayor yesterday fainted at the Mutare Civic Centre after he lost mayoral elections to lawyer, Simon Chabuka who contested the elections under the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) party led by Nelson Chamisa.

The mayoral elections were held to replace former Mutare mayor Blessing Tandi who was recalled last week by the MDC Alliance led by Mwonzora after the party said he had ceased to be their member.

Bhiza was acting mayor before yesterday’s elections were held, where he lost to Chabuka by six votes to five.
