VPs Will Not Be Elected At Zanu-PF Congress, Mnangagwa Will Use His Discretion To Appoint

Zanu-PF Secretary for Information and Publicity, Simon Khaya Moyo has said that the forthcoming Zanu-PF Extraordinary Congress will not elect any leaders, emphasizing that the Congress will only discuss that business for which it has been convened. The congress will be held in Harare with the main “indaba” taking place on Friday, the 15th of December. It is expected to endorse the resolutions passed by the Central Committee on the 19th of November 2017. Khaya Moyo said that President Emmerson Mnangagwa is not obliged to appoint his Vice Presidents at Congress. Instead, the President will at his discretion choose whether or not to appoint at most two Vice Presidents as well as the National Chair for Zanu-PF.

In an interview, with the Sunday Mail, Khaya-Moyo said:

This is an Extraordinary Congress and as such, it will discuss only that business for which it has been convened.

There are basically three issues that will be on the table. The first one is to confirm our President and First Secretary of the party. The second one is to endorse His Excellency, President Emmerson Mnangagwa, as our candidate for the 2018 harmonised elections. The third aspect is to endorse Central Committee resolutions that were made by the last committee which met on November 19.

What is also important to note is that we are not going to have thematic committees. There will also be no elections at the Congress. In general, it is a non-elective Congress. However, there are vacancies in the party, which are that of the two Vice-Presidents and the National Chairperson.

The President of the party may decide to appoint these during the Congress, but he is not obliged to. He can choose to announce the appointment at the Congress or at another stage.
