Zanu PF Acting Spokesperson Patrick Chinamasa has taken the time to warn his party members that they risk being expelled from Zanu PF if they engage in any acts of indiscipline during the DCC polls which will be held at 1248 polling stations countrywide despite the ban on public gatherings, the Daily News reports.
Chinamasa was speaking during a Press conference in Harare yesterday when he said:
I want to warn any of our members … that we are watching any acts of indiscipline that bring the party into disrepute Acts of indiscipline will be reported to our national disciplinary committee which will descend with a sledge hammer on anyone convicted of perpetrating any acts of violence which disrupt the electoral process.
I want to say to our members if you commit any acts of indiscipline don’t be surprised to find yourself outside the membership of Zanu PF. Don’t blame anybody but yourself,” Chinamasa warned further.
To ensure fairness and minimise manipulation, members of the central committee from one district will supervise elections in another district.
All preparations for the DCC are on course. We are confident that we will successfully hold the elections. The supervisory team, including election commissioners and politburo members, have since been deployed to their respective work stations.
Chinamasa’s scathing warning comes amid reports of vote irregularities and in some cases violence in some parts of the country in the period leading to the DCC polls.
