Chombo responds to reports Zanu-PF Special Congress will be used to fire Mnangagwa

Zanu-PF National Secretary for Administration Ignatius Chombo told The Sunday Mail yesterday that the party’s special congress will not be used to dismiss Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Chombo said that the special congress will review biometric voter registration, the 10-Point Plan for Economic Growth, the State Constitution and national policies. Said Chombo:

Our party calendar and Government calendar do not tally, so in the year that they do not sychronise, we may decide to have an Extraordinary Congress to make sure that we are prepared. This is not new. It will not look at individual issues; we focus on national party issues. The removal of people from certain positions, just like the Cabinet reshuffle, the President can do it anytime. So, let’s not be arrogant and suggest for him. The constitution provides for the President as the one centre of power. He can use his discretion and does not need Congress. I cannot run the party based on wishes of individuals. I run the party on the dictates of the party constitution.
