I SUPPOSE that for a political nonentity to announce a “political turnaround” at the Heroes’ Day celebrations in front of ZTV cameras does suggest a certain degree of style – or perhaps mere vanity.

The questions to be asked are why she did not seek election as a Zanu PF candidate in the first place – and more importantly, why the MDC made such a poor choice of candidate for a councillor?
