The Zanu-PF Extraordinary Congress to be held in December in place of the scheduled Annual National People’s Conference looks set to amend the party’s constitution to accommodate a female Vice President. This comes after all 10 Zanu-PF provinces passed the resolution to have an Extraordinary Congress over the weekend. The provinces also unanimously endorsed President Robert Mugabe to be Zanu-PF’s 2018 Presidential candidate.
Harare Provincial spokesperson Dr Adicia Ushewokunze said
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
Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri, said:
As Manicaland, we are rallying behind President Mugabe. We know his well documented history. He is our candidate for 2018 and anyone thinking otherwise is lost. He is a giant among giants as he is the only president who challenged USA President Donald Trump at the just-ended United Nations Summit. President Mugabe is our jewel and asset.
