Zanu PF has fired three senior officials in Karba for failing to recruit 15 000 new members. The party is on a recruitment drive ahead of the 2018 elections and three were supposed to recruit 5 000 new members each. The fired officials are Mahombekombe district chairman Martin Ndambakuwa, Takunda chairman Clever Chitofu and kuwirirana chairman Nomore Gosa.
A source who spoke to New Zimbabwe said:
Kariba MP Isaac Mackenzie attended the meeting which last week resolved to fire party leadership which had failed to deliver. Yotamu had no kind words for the three last week in the meeting. He also ordered the cell leaders to bring him their restructured structures.
Zanu PF here wants to make sure that come 2018, the party is assured of at least 15000 new voters before the voting date, and all the local party leadership have been advised to work towards that target.
