Zanu PF appoints Politburo members to lead campaigns

Zanu PF National Political Commissar Cde Mike Bimha

ZANU PF has appointed Politburo members who will work with provincial structures and campaign teams in the nine constituencies where by-elections will be held on December 9.

Those appointed are Cde Simbarashe Mumbengegwi (Bulawayo South), Cde Richard M Ndlovu (Lobengula-Magwegwe), Cde Headman Moyo (Mpopoma), Cde Daniel Mackenzie-Ncube (Cowdray Park), Cde Alice Dube (Nketa), Cde Christopher Mutsvangwa (Mabvuku-Tafara), Dr Obert Mpofu (Lupane East), Cde Jacob Mudenda and Cde Munyaradzi Machacha (Binga North) and Cde Kenneth Musanhi (Beitbridge West).

Zanu PF candidates who will contest in the forthcoming by-elections will go for orientation at the Chitepo School of Ideology to understand the party’s ethos and ideology.

The party is contesting in the nine impending by-elections which were triggered by the first round of CCC recalls initiated by the opposition party’s interim secretary-general Mr Sengezo Tshabangu.

The recalls affected nine CCC National Assembly constituency members, five proportional representation members and nine Senators .

Zanu PF National Political Commissar Cde Mike Bimha yesterday urged party structures to work with the Politburo members who had been assigned to them and give them the necessary support.

“I appeal to our membership as well as our provincial leaderships to make sure that they work with the Politburo members who have been assigned to them and give them the necessary support,” he said.

Party candidates contesting the forthcoming by-elections will go for orientation at the Chitepo School of Ideology.

“There is a need to ensure that our candidates have the appropriate ideological training. 

“There is a need to ensure that the people we ask to assist us in this process, in other words, the polling agents, are also trained so that they know what they are expected to do,” said Cde Bimha.

This follows a tour of Matabeleland South, Matabeleland North, Bulawayo and Harare provinces where by-elections are scheduled. 

Cde Bimha expressed confidence that Zanu PF would win the by-elections.

“A lot of progress has been made so far. Our teams are already on the ground. We are happy with the preparations so far and the involvement of everyone in the structures to make sure that we register victory.

“We are just coming from the harmonised elections, but because of the recalls, we are now back into campaign mode and therefore it’s another chance for people in Bulawayo province to ensure that they exercise their right and that they choose the right people who can represent them, people who stand for what is right and not only for them, but for the country as a whole,” he said.

“Every election is very important, we would like our party members to exercise their right to vote for the people that they want.

“Our teams are already on the ground. We are happy with the preparations so far and the involvement of everyone in the structures to make sure that we register victory.”

Speaking at the same occasion, Politburo member and principal of the Chitepo School of Ideology, Cde Munyaradzi Machacha, said President Mnangagwa was the chief ideologist of the ruling party Zanu PF party. 

“We believe every election is a contest not just of ideas for political power but also the ideological contest between our progressive socialist ideology of Zanu PF and the anarchist ideology of the opposition,” Cde Machacha said.

“We therefore wanted to make our candidates know that our President, His Excellency President Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa, is our chief ideologist and has made philosophical statements which simplify our socialist ideology for every person or citizen to be able to understand and internalise that ideology and participate in the struggle to liberate our people economically and to make sure that Zimbabwe is truly an independent, sovereign state which is ruled according to the wishes and goals of this nation and not any other way”.
