Zanu PF aspiring candidates from Umguza constituency in the forthcoming primary elections have submitted their curriculum vitaes (CVs) as part of procedures leading to the selection of candidates who will represent the party in the general elections to be held in July.
The submissions were made at the party district offices, this afternoon.
Preparations for the Zanu PF primary elections are taking shape with all the districts in Matabeleland North, having met for the submission of CVs by members who wish to be senators, members of parliament, women’s quota and councillors among other positions.
Umguza legislator Dr Obert Mpofu told party members that there will be no imposition of candidates and advised them to be united, consult widely before elections and accept the outcome of the primary elections.
“When you submit your CV the information we want is your history in the party, that you have been a party member from cell, branch, district, province and so forth. We also want to know what you have done. Those who want certain positions please let us not cause chaos,” he explained.
The party’s Matabeleland North provincial chairman Cde Richard Moyo urged party members to remain united even if they lose in the primary elections.
“It doesn`t mean you start campaigning now, no, no no!!! We have not been given a go ahead to start campaigning. Your names will go to the province and then to the party headquarters in Harare for approval. If your name is approved then you will be told officially and the dates to clear everyone for campaigns will be announced,” said the provincial chairman.
Some of the conditions for one to qualify are that interested candidates must be paid up members in terms of subscriptions.
The candidates will also be required to sign an agreement that they will agree with the final outcome even if they emerge as losers.
Meanwhile, the CVs will be handed over to the province at a Provincial Coordinating Committee (PCC) meeting to be held in Lupane this Wednesday.
