President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Wednesday told the ZANU PF politburo that the party should take note of Chama Cha Mapinduzi’s recent overwhelming victory in Tanzania’s general elections and use it as an inspiration in the impending by-elections and 2023 harmonised elections.
Mnangagwa made the remarks while speaking at the 346th Ordinary Session of the Politburo at the party headquarters in Harare yesterday. He said:
The resounding victory of our sister party, Chama Cha Mapinduzi in Tanzania which won 262 seats of the 264 parliamentary seats, must inspire Zanu PF to vanquish the opposition in the forthcoming by-elections and subsequent 2023 general elections.
Addressing a post-politburo meeting, acting spokesperson Patrick Chinamasa said the politburo resolved to bring order in the local government sector regarding the allocation of residential stands.
Chinamasa warned land barons that will soon face the full wrath of the law. He said:
Politburo agreed to restore sanity in the local government sector, particularly in the parcelling out of stands and in some cases like Chitungwiza communal land to individuals which started and continue unabated under former ministers (Ignatius) Chombo and (Savior) Kasukuwere who were Local Government ministers.
Politburo members implicated in land baron shenanigans must expect what is due to them. The law will take its course.
