Former Chairman of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWA) Jabulani Sibanda has reportedly submitted his curriculum vitae for consideration to contest for the party’s Bulawayo provincial chairperson position.
Sibanda was re-admitted into ZANU PF three years ago following a successful application together with other members that were previously expelled.
At some point, Sibanda served as the ZANU PF chairman for Bulawayo Province.
While Sibanda could neither confirm nor deny the reports during an interview with The Sunday News, party sources revealed that he had indeed submitted his papers.
ZANU PF Bulawayo province will be holding a Provincial Coordinating Committee (PCC) meeting this Sunday.
The names of all those that submitted their curriculum vitae will be announced at the meeting.
ZANU PF National Political Commissar, Mike Bimha, said the party will receive CVs that were submitted by the contestants on Monday at the party headquarters in Harare. Said Bimha:
There are Provincial Co-ordinating Committee meetings going on around the provinces today (Saturday) and tomorrow (today), so I can’t comment until they finish their work on Sunday.
On Monday they will be bringing their CVs to Harare, so it is only when we get their reports that I can make a comment. At the moment it’s a work in progress, so I have not made any observations.
All ZANU PF provinces were instructed to complete district elections today.
All aspiring candidates for the position of provincial chairpersons, chairwomen and youth chairpersons must have submitted CVs by last Friday.
