Zanu PF Women’s League from Mashonaland East on Friday reportedly held a highly charged secretive election and the provincial chairlady Nyarai Tsvuura was reportedly replaced by her deputy Lyn Gororo, The Standard.
According to a source that spoke to the publication:
They are saying Tsvuura was co-opted, hence the need for elections. It is confusing as she was reinstated by the politburo a few months ago, but today we are being instructed to conduct elections.
We are not sure whether it is a politburo directive as well. Tsvuura attended the meeting but she didn’t contest resulting in her deputy Lyn Gororo taking over.
We have some members who were co-opted into positions and we do not know when the elections for them will be held.
Tsvuura who at one point was suspended from the Zanu PF Women’s league for trumped-up charges which according to the publication includes gossiping was reinstated recently following Joe Biggie Matiza’s intervention. The Zanu PF Women’s league was also restricting her from accessing the party vehicle assigned to her.
When contacted for comment Matiza said he was aware of the meeting and said:
I am aware that they held a meeting in Marondera to discuss issues concerning them. However, I am yet to receive the report on what transpired on the day. The women’s league has the power to solve burning issues if need arises but like I said, I am ye to be apprised.
