Zanu PF elective congress set for October


Harare (New Ziana) – The ruling Zanu PF party will hold its elective congress in October this year, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said on Thursday.

He was speaking at a Politburo meeting of the party.

“As we convene at this session, it is important that we remain alive to the fact that this is the year our party is holding our elective conferences of the women and youth leagues as well as the main party congress scheduled for October 2022,” he said.

“This is over and above preparations for the 2023 Harmonised General Elections.”

President Mnangagwa encouraged all party departments to begin thorough preparations and to focus their administrative programmes and priorities accordingly.

On the impending by elections, he said, these presented the ruling party with an opportunity to show its mettle.

Zimbabwe is holding Parliamentary and local Authority by elections on Saturday.

“The by elections present our party with an opportunity for us to cement our dominance and popularity across the country,” he said.

“We are the dominant and only people’s party.”

But, he said to achieve victory, there was need for unity within the party.

“There is no room for divisive tendencies, empire building and short sighted strategies that advance the interests of cliques,” he said.

“The engagements with the people during these by-election campaigns have revealed that in some cases, it is those in the party leadership who are causing confusion among the general membership.

“The party is bigger than all of us and those found on the wrong side of the party line risk falling by the way side.
