An extraordinary meeting of the Zanu PF Politburo has ended at the party headquarters in Harare, with an announcement that the Presidium will make a final decision on the fate of the party’s National Political Commissar, Cde Saviour Kasukuwere.
Cde Kasukuwere has lately been under fire following demonstrations held in various provinces including his home province, Mashonaland Central, where Zanu PF supporters demanded that he be relieved of his duties as National Commissar, accusing him of fanning factionalism in the party by creating parallel structures.
Speaking shortly after the meeting, the party’s Secretary for Information and Publicity, Cde Simon Khaya Moyo, said a report on the outcome of investigations on allegations against Cde Kasukuwere were read to Politburo members page by page.
“The report will be digested by the presidium which will make a decision at a later date,” he said.
The team which investigated the accusations against Cde Kasukuwere was led by National Assembly Speaker, Advocate Jacob Mudenda.
Meanwhile, the late Cde Dick ‘Chinx’ Chingaira has been declared a liberation war hero.
Making the announcement in Harare today, Cde Khaya Moyo said Cde Chinx will be buried at the Harare Provincial Heroes Acre at a day to be announced soon.
