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In light of these, I have withdrawn my candidature for the MDC Alliance ticket for Harare West.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