Dear Harare Westerners

In 2008 I was elected to represent the people of the newly formed Harare West constituency in National Assembly. Since then I have discharged my duties as a parliamentarian representing the will of Harare Westerners at best and for the good of our beloved Zimbabwe.

My re-election into Parliament in 2013 is signalled Harare Westerners confidence in me to representing their will and voice.As we come to the close of this 8th parliament, I have been seeking to continue representing of Harare West under the MDC Alliance banner.

However, there are several of factors, which I have highlighted to my party, that have constituted a manipulation of party guidelines towards a fair outcome in the impending primary elections. This has been to such an extent that the will and voice of Harare Westeners whom I am a part of will be lost in the political processes at play.

In light of these, I have withdrawn my candidature for the MDC Alliance ticket for Harare West.

“Dear Harare Westerners, I continue to have your interests at heart and together as always we will forge a way forward best for our community. A Harare West constituency in which all who live and work in it attain the best possible standard of living and work promised by Harare West constituency.

Your MP

Jessie Fungayi Majome
