The 320th ordinary session of the Zanu PF Politburo has described the just-ended 2018 harmonised elections, which the party won resoundingly, as peaceful, free and fair.
In a post mortem analysis report, the party’s Secretary for the Commissariat, Retired Lieutenant General Engelbert Rugeje noted that Zanu PF’s reinvigorated effort to capture the urban vote paid dividends.
He said this was exemplified by the increase in the number of votes cast for National Assembly members and the presidential candidate, President-elect Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa.
The Politburo deplored the unfortunate violence perpetrated by MDC Alliance hooligans on the 1st of this month in Harare, which resulted in the death of six people, injury of 14 others and destruction of property.
The Politburo also congratulated Cde Mnangagwa for being declared winner of the presidential election by ZEC as well as various observer missions for witnessing Zimbabwe’s harmonised elections.
The Zanu Secretary for Information and Publicity, Ambassador Simon Khaya Moyo briefed the media after the politburo meeting.
