ZANU-PF is set to hold Cen­tral Com­mit­tee elec­tions as the party re-aligns it­self ahead of the Special Con­gress to be held in Harare next month.

The party last month re­solved to go for a special con­gress whose agenda is to af­firm Pres­i­dent Mu­gabe as Zanu-PF’s Pres­i­den­tial can­di­date for 2018 elec­tions and el­e­vate a Women’s League mem­ber into the party’s and Gov­ern­ment’s pre­sid­ium.

The con­gress will also come up with an elec­tion cam­paign strat­egy for 2018.

Zanu-PF’s na­tional spokesper­son, Cde Si­mon KhayaMoyo, yes­ter­day con­firmed the Cen­tral Com­mit­tee elec­tions which he said are a pre-req­ui­site be­fore any Con­gress.

“We al­ways hold Cen­tral Com­mit­tee elec­tions be­fore go­ing for a Con­gress and prov­inces have al­ready been in­formed about the elec­tions. A cir­cu­lar has been sent to prov­inces by Le­gal Af­fairs Sec­re­tary Cde Pa­trick Chi­na­masa whose de­part­ment han­dles the mat­ter,” said Cde Khaya-Moyo.

He said the prov­inces that are not sure of what is ex­pected of them should en­gage the party’s le­gal af­fairs or the com­mis­sariat de­part­ment.

Mata­bele­land North’s pro­vin­cial chair­man Cde Richard Moyo said the prov­ince has started pre­par­ing for the Cen­tral Com­mit­tee elec­tions.

He said it’s up to the party’s mem­bers to elect new or re­tain the ex­ist­ing Cen­tral Com­mit­tee mem­bers.

“We’ve been in­formed that we should hold Cen­tral Com­mit­tee elec­tions be­fore the De­cem­ber con­gress and we have al­ready in­formed the dis­tricts re­gard­ing this po­si­tion,” said Cde Moyo.

He how­ever said dates for the elec­tions are yet to be an­nounced.

The party will hold its special Con­gress at Robert Mu­gabe Square in Harare from De­cem­ber 12 to De­cem­ber 17. — @nqot­shili.
