The Zanu PF Masvingo and Matabeleland South provinces today celebrated the new political dispensation, when they held provincial coordinating committee (PCC) meetings to chart the way forward ahead of next year’s general elections.
The party’s leadership in Masvingo says no stone will be left unturned, as they take their campaigns to a higher level in preparation for the 2018 general elections.
Provincial chairman, Cde Ezra Chadzamira applauded the province for remaining resolute in the face of challenges they experienced in the past few months.
He underscored the need for unity as the election campaign intensifies.
Newly appointed Masvingo Minister of State for Provincial Affairs, Cde Josiah Hungwe, said while a lot of confusion had been caused in the party by elements which have since been removed, it is now time to rebuild.
At the meeting, Mr Kudakwashe Bhaskiti and Mr Clauduis Makova, who were now with the Zimbabwe People First (ZPF) announced their intentions to rejoin Zanu PF.
The ruling party leadership said it will consider the two’s request.
The Zanu PF Matabeleland South Provincial Coordinating Committee also held a meeting in Gwanda this Sunday to self introspect and chart a way forward in the new political dispensation.
Zanu PF Politburo member, who is also the Minister of Defence, Security and War Veterans, Cde Kembo Mohadi said it is time to bury the hatchet and rebuild the party.
He further revealed that the government will make a decision on the course of action to be taken on those who have sought refuge in other countries.
The Minister of State for Matabeleland South Province, Cde Abednico Ncube also preached a message of unity, among party members as Zanu PF readies for elections next year.
The meeting was followed by the toasting of champagne, cake cutting and feasting as the province celebrated the appointment of Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa as the First Secretary of the party and the country’s president.
