Zanu PF plans to restructure its provincial structures in the other provinces following the changes in Harare and Bulawayo.
Said Zanu PF National Political Commissar, RetiredLieutenant-General Engelbert Rugeje:
What happens in our party is that our constitution stipulates that every year, we restructure our cells (village structures) and there will be elections. After two years, there is branch restructuring and then after three years, we restructure our districts. In the fourth year, we will then restructure provinces and then the fifth year we have the Central Committee and then we go for a congress.
However, because we got into the new dispensation there are some things that we failed to do because there were other pressing issues and programmes such as the harmonised elections, our primary elections and the national people’s conference.
‘‘We then failed to conduct our provincial elections due to the tight schedule
The restructuring of Harare and Bulawayo provincial structure raised speculation that Emmerson Mnangagwa was restructuring the party leadership in order to consolidate his power. Some suggestions of factional differences with Vice President Constantino Chiwenga were also made.
