Zanu-PF officials confirmed the party’s 17th Annual National People’s Conference begins with a Politburo meeting tomorrow (Tuesday) at the party’s headquarters in Harare followed by that of the Central Committee at the same venue on Wednesday.
Zanu-PF spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo said on Thursday, delegates will travel to Esigodini, Matabeleland South, for the official opening of the conference on Friday by the party’s First Secretary and President, Emmerson Mnangagwa. He said Conference business will spill over into Saturday and delegates will depart on Sunday. Zanu-PF Secretary for Administration Obert Mpofu urged delegates to be extra-cautious following reports of a suspected cholera outbreak in Gwanda. He said people should avoid unnecessary contact and desist from carrying foodstuffs.
