Norton legislator, Temba Mliswa held victory celebrations in Norton yesterday, calling all candidates who lost to join him in uplifting the standards of living for the people.

It was a day to remember for most Norton residents who thronged Norton grounds for the celebrations.

For the legislator, the message was that of unity among all the people of Norton.

“What we want is unity so that we all contribute to the development of our area regardless of political affiliation or fortunes during last month’s elections,” he said.

Some community leaders present, who include the Chairperson of war veterans in Norton, Cde Joseph Chinyangare and Shelter Musikandu representing traditional leadership, said now is the time to unite and develop Norton.

The event was punctuated with music from various bands.
