The just-ended ZANU PF 19th National People’s Conference that was held in Bindura has endorsed President Emmerson Mnangagwa as the party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 harmonised elections.
The acting party spokesperson, Mike Bimha, said the decision to endorse Mnangagwa as the sole presidential candidate was made by all the party wings. Said Bimha:
As you have seen the Conference has ended. We had deliberations and resolutions were made during the time when the media was excluded as it was a closed-door session. I am going to cherry-pick some of the important resolutions.
I want to advise you that all the organs and wings of the party have endorsed President Mnangagwa. This was the main resolution.
He said the Conference resolved that there shall be no imposition of candidates for any position during the party’s internal elections.
Conference also resolved to ban party members from labelling each other as G40 functionaries, said Bimha.
Bimha also said Mnangagwa vetoed a proposal that recommended that provincial chairpersons should be appointed into office.
