Addressing the Zanu-PF Masvingo Provincial Coordinating Committee (PCC) meeting at Victoria Junior Primary School, Zanu-PF National Political Commissar Retired Lieutenant General Engelbert Rugeje said the party will hold primary elections on May 5 to elect council and National Assembly candidates who will represent it in the forthcoming harmonised polls expected in July. He called for prospective candidates to start submitting their cirruculum vitae.
He said aspiring candidates should not start campaigning. Said Rugeje:
We are going to hold our primary elections on May 5 and I have already written letters to the provinces to that effect. Aspiring candidates should start submitting their CVs for vetting, but I want to make it clear that we have not yet said people should start campaigning. We will notify aspiring candidates on when they should start campaigning. The reason we are saying aspiring candidates should not start campaigning is because some may not make it during vetting after spending their resources on the ground. So, I am warning aspiring candidates against premature campaigning because some may waste their resources. Campaigning will only start after the vetting process.
