Tsvangirai's daugher wins election from hospital bed

Morgan Tsvangirai’s daughter Vimbai Tsvangirai-Java has won the MDC women’s assembly secretary general post from a hospital bed.
Java, who is sitting MP for Glen View South, was involved in a Kwekwe car crash that killed two occupants who include her maternal uncle a fortnight ago.
They were returning to Harare from a party caucus in Bulawayo.
Java is daughter to Susan Tsvangirai who died 2009 in a road crash which saw then Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai escape with injuries.
She faced off challenge from Memory Mbodiya for the influential women’s job.
Party spokesperson Jacob Mafume confirmed Java was still in a Harare hospital.
Last week, Mafume told journalists that Java was recovering well at Harare’s Avenues Clinic.
She was said to have suffered superficial head wounds, broken left hand and a broken pelvis.
