“I want to be a candidate; it’s up to the people of Vungu to decide. If they want me I will always be available to work for them and also serve my country. They have been pleading with me to be their voice and l think it’s now the right time for me to come back home and help developing the constituency,” Sibanda told Radio VOP at the weekend.
Sibanda, one of the most popular deejays on ZBC’s Radio 2 in the 1990s and now works for Visions Radio in United Kingdom, said the current Member of Parliament, Zanu (PF’s) Josephat Madubeko had failed to deliver.
He said under Madubeko Vungu had remained underdeveloped and the constituency had been turned into a begging bowl and yet it used to be the bread basket of the country through farming. Despite that it is a green area, it had no boreholes and people did not have access to clean water.
‘”Nothing again has happened in terms of development in my constituency, people are experiencing hardships, schools have no books, on health it is deplorable no medication in the few clinics we have, state of roads unbelievable bad,” said Sibanda.
He said he respects his party MDC-T, its leadership and members adding that the party believes in democracy.
During his days at ZBC’s Radio 2 Sibanda used to do programme like Kwaziso/Ukubingelelana , Ezemuli/Dzemhuri among others.
