Zanu-PF provincial spokesperson Dr Abicia Ushewokunze said the party’s extraordinary congress will also amend the 2014 party constitution to have a female Vice President as suggested by the Grace Mugabe-led Women’s League.
That President Mugabe is the sole candidate is not a debate, but idzokororo (repetition). We resolved that the constitution be amended as there are a number of issues yet to be addressed, especially the Women’s League resolution on Vice Presidents. All conferences have passed this resolution, the party’s 10 provinces agreed and the President apologised for this oversight at the party HQ recently. In future people will think resolutions are just passed for the sake of concluding a conference yet this is not the case,
President Robert Mugabe called on Zanu-PF to have 3 Vice Presidents with one position being reserved for a female member of the party.
