He was victorious in Zimbabwe's 2000 parliamentary election, despite the attempts of the Zimbabwe African National Union - Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) party to intimidate Movement for Democratic Change voters. Later conflicts with the ZANU-PF party led to his arrest and forced him to seek political asylum in South Africa.
