THE Zanu-PF Politburo will convene a meeting at the party’s headquarters in Harare today.
In a statement yesterday, party spokesperson Cde Simon Khaya Moyo said a Central Committee meeting which had been scheduled for Friday had been postponed to a date to be advised.
“The Zanu-PF secretary for administration Cde Obert Mpofu wishes to advise all members that there shall be a Politburo meeting on Wednesday June 26, 2019 at the party headquarters at 10AM.
“A Central Committee meeting which was set to be held at the party headquarters main hall at 10AM on Friday has been postponed,” said Cde Khaya Moyo.
The Politburo meeting is expected to come up with dates for the party’s provincial elections for Bulawayo and Harare provinces.
This follows the nullification of the results of the Bulawayo provincial elections last month after the provincial leadership in Bulawayo realised that the calibre of party members that were being nominated into leadership positions was below the party’s expectations and standards.
Last month, Cde Obert Mpofu said elections for the provincial executive council members would only take place after direction from the Politburo and the President and the First Secretary of the party, Cde Mnangagwa.
In March, President Mnangagwa dissolved all party structures in the two provinces.
The party leadership said the dissolution of the party structures would address problems that have resulted in the party perennially losing elections in the two provinces.
The party said Vice President Constantino Chiwenga will oversee the party’s affairs in Harare while Vice President Kembo Mohadi was assigned to oversee structures in Bulawayo.
