Charamba allegedly tweeted, “Mbuhlo ndizvo#EDTheGameChanger”. The sharp tounged Charamba took to tweeter a campaign poster of Mudha the current Midlands Province Secretary for Security much to the dismay of those who are opposed to his bid for the chairmanship.

Charamba could also not be reached for a comment as his mobile phone went unanswered.
