ZANU-PF’S Man­i­ca­land pro­vin­cial chair­man, Cde Mike Madiro, has wel­comed the re-in­tro­duc­tion of District Co-or­di­nat­ing Com­mit­tees, say­ing ban­ish­ing them had seen some mem­bers of the Na­tional Assem­bly per­son­al­is­ing the party, thereby mak­ing it dys­func­tional at grass­roots.

In an in­ter­view on Tues­day ahead of the party’s Ex­tra­or­di­nary Congress in Harare to­day, Cde Madiro said the party had been per­son­alised by some mem­bers of Na­tional Assem­bly as they were not an­swer­able to any­one in their re­spec­tive dis­tricts.

“As Man­i­ca­land, we wel­come the res­o­lu­tion by the Cen­tral Com­mit­tee to rein­tro­duce District Co-or­di­nat­ing Com­mit­tees which help in manag­ing the party’s grass­roots. Through DCCs, the span of con­trol will be stream­lined. We re­alised that the party had been com­pro­mised by some MPs who were now per­son­al­is­ing it.

“Some struc­tures were now dys­func­tional as a re­sult. Some MPs were do­ing ev­ery­thing by them­selves with­out any su­per­vi­sion. They had be­come the al­pha and omega of the party. DCCs cre­ate syn­er­gies and we ap­plaud the Cen­tral Com­mit­tee’s de­ci­sion to re-in­tro­duce them,” said Cde Madiro.
