Son to the Shurugwi born national hero Josiah Magama Tongogara, Conrad Tongogara, will today battle it out with 20 other politicians in the Chiwundura National Assembly primary elections, ahead of Friday’s nomination court sitting for the seat that fell vacant following the death of  Kizito Chivamba last month.

Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) declared the seat vacant last week and the revolutionary party last Friday invited interested candidates to submit their CVs.

President Mugabe has since declared July 15 as the by-election date.
