Addressing Zanu-PF members during a commissariat rally in Nhwali, Gwanda South, last week, the party’s national commissar, Retired Lieutenant-General Engelbert Rugeje said aspiring members will not be able to join the party if they do not attend the Herbert Chitepo School of Ideology.
He added that for one to be a member of Zanu-PF Central Committee they have to have done a programme at the school. Said Rugeje:
Programmes from the Herbert Chitepo School of Ideology School are now there. We would like everyone in Zanu-PF and those that want to join that they will not get membership cards if they don’t do programmes on politics. Even if you have a lot of money you will have to go for seven days so that they instil principles and values, then we give you a T-shirt and party card because we will be speaking the same language. We are going to have programmes that come to cells and everyone will be schooled. For you to be in the Central Committee, you should have done a certain programme to understand the party principles.
