The revolutionary party Zanu PF has set its sights on retaining the Norton parliamentary seat in the pending by-election after holding successful and peaceful primary elections on Saturday.

The by-election is scheduled for the 22nd of October this year.

Voting was conducted in a peaceful environment with hundreds of the party members from the constituency casting their votes.

All the 18 polling stations were opened as early as 8 am and closed mid afternoon.
