The Zanu-PF Matabeleland South Province has rejected the list of parliamentary candidates which came from the party’s national commissariat headed by retired Lieutenant General Engelbert Rugeje. The province resolved to come up with its own list saying that it was against the imposition of candidates following the disputed Zanu-PF primary elections. This follows a Zanu-PF Matabeleland South Provincial Co-Coordinating Committee (PCC) meeting on Monday.
PCC members told Zanu-PF provincial chairman Rabelani Choene,
Chairman, we will not accept anything that is not endorsed by this PCC, let us come up with our final list that we will send to Harare. We say no to imposition of candidates.
The PCC is the authentic body so they have the right to come out with the finalist of their candidates. Those who are grumbling, there is nothing to grumble about, we are Zanu-PF, we are not voting for individuals but the party. So your little battles are over.
