ZANU PF political commissar, Victor Matemadanda has dismissed reports suggesting that the ongoing restructuring process is likely to be aborted as some senior officials believe it is causing divisions.
The ruling party embarked on the restructuring process to establish formidable structures to recruit and mobilise members ahead of the 2023 election.
Speaking to NewsDay on Friday, Matemadanda professed ignorance on the matter adding that it could be a strategy by some aspiring candidates to dissuade rivals from preparing. He said:
If there are plans like that, I am yet to get that. I don’t know where that is coming from. If there is such a directive, I am yet to get communication to that effect.
It may be a strategy by others to make other competitors relax while they get on the ground, I don’t know really. I don’t have such an instruction.
This comes amid reports that the governing party is marred by factionalism with two main factions being led by President Emmerson Mnangagwa and another by his deputy Vice President Constantino Chiwenga.
Meanwhile, members of the ousted G40 faction are reportedly keen to return to the party.
