Ndlovu said representation goes beyond an individual.
“I will make sure l listen to everyone regardless of political affiliation, and will be free to associate with every body rich or poor, it would be a tall order to please all but my wishes would be done open because it won’t work if i undermine others, to me it won’t work, people would be my masters, l have to respect voters first, l promise to create jobs for the benefit of Kwekwe Central,” he said.
