In a statement, Zanu-PF Secretary for Information and Publicity Simon Khaya Moyo warned the party’s aspiring candidates to stop conducting unsanctioned primary election campaigns with immediate effect.
Khaya Moyo said the time for campaigns has not started yet and that aspiring candidates will campaign together in meetings. Said Khaya Moyo:
The time for campaigns has not yet started. The National Political Commissar, Lieutenant-General Engelbert Rugeje (Retired), who is the chairman of the Elections Commission, will communicate to all the provinces when campaigns will start. Those who are already campaigning must cease such efforts forthwith. As regards to primary elections, those aspiring candidates in a given constituency will campaign together in all meetings and be allocated time to speak to the electorate regarding what they have to offer in terms of service delivery to the people
