webster shamu as commisar.jpg Zanu PF National Political Commissar, Cde Webster Shamu says the party is currently working on a new regulation for the holding of primary elections to avoid the imposing of candidates.

Cde Shamu said this while addressing a gathering at Rutara Primary School in Chegutu, where he was handing over building material worth US$17 000 for the construction of a classroom block.

The Information, Media and Publicity Minister said he, together with Defence Minister, Cde Emmerson mnangagwa and Zanu PF Secretary for Administration, Cde Dydimus Mutasa are in the process of drafting new laws to ensure that there are no candidates who are going to be imposed on any election as what happened in the previous elections.

He said Zanu PF is a party which is guided by democratic principles and candidates with the most votes will represent the party in various posts in the forthcoming elections.

The move to draft new laws for holding primary elections is in line with the resolutions passed at the party’s 11th Annual People’s Conference held in Mutare last December to ensure the party wins resoundingly.

Meanwhile, Zanu PF Politburo member, Cde Abednigo Ncube has urged the Gwanda district leadership to ensure that the parliamentary seats lost to the opposition are regained in the next elections.

Cde Ncube made the remarks during a meeting to welcome former United People’s Party Provincial Co-ordinator, Cde Admire Ngubo Dube, who defected to Zanu PF after serving UPP a Mat South Provincial Co-ordinator for 5 years.

He said Zanu PF is now assured of a vote from Dube, adding that Dube’s defection will inspire other disgruntled members of the opposition to come back home where they rightly belong.

Dube’s defection follows a resolution by UPP President, Dr Daniel Shumba and the entire executive to back Zanu PF in the face of the regime change agenda that is being pursued by the MDC.

Speaking at the same occasion, Cde Dube said while UPP policies were similar to Zanu PF, he chose the revolutionary party because it is the only party, which is fighting for the indigenisation and empowerment of black people in the country.
