“Peter Ndlovu Will Certainly Contest In The 2023 Elections”
12 August 2021
Former Warriors skipper Peter Ndlovu will contest in the 2023 Zimbabwe general election for the country’s presidency, an official from All People’s Party (APP), the party he is said to be contesting under, has said.
AAP vice president Sebastian Mubvumbi confirmed that Ndlovu will indeed contest in the upcoming poll and also explained why the current Mamelodi Sundowns team manager has not personally confirmed it.

Zimbabwe is scheduled to hold general (harmonised) elections in 2023 to determine the country’s, president, legislators and councillors.
Speaking to football website Soccer24 on Thursday, Mubvumbi asserted that if it was not true that Ndlovu will contest in the upcoming poll, by now he would have released a statement distancing himself from the reports. Said Mubvumbi:
Get it from me, indeed it’s official Peter Ndlovu will contest in the next general election. This is purely out of conviction and principle. He is the president of the party there are no two ways about it.
Let me reiterate that we have to appreciate the unique times we are in due to the COVID-19 pandemic as this has hampered any plans we may have had to hit the ground running as envisaged.
A response from Peter Ndlovu will come at a time deemed appropriate as he is currently inundated with other commitments.
Rest assured that he is abreast with all that is taking place within the party structures. I brief him every week.
In media circles we say you can’t not communicate, the silence is communication. If he wasn’t part of this he would have a long time ago issued a statement distancing himself from APP.
Mubvumbi insisted Ndlovu's entry into politics is not motivated by a desire for personal gain but is a response to a call from various sectors of the Zimbabwean community who felt he was the right person to usher in the desired dispensation. Added Mubvumbi:
There is a time for everything, we felt this was the right time for him to get in the political ring.
The people want a leader that they can handhold not what we have witnessed over the years where a leader is dictatorial. In other words, Ndlovu is a symbol of a people’s leadership.
