ZANU PF Set To Hold Primaries Next Week
ZANU PF is planning to hold its primary elections next week in preparation for general elections set to be held later this year, reported The Sunday Mail.
Addressing an ordinary session of the Politburo on Thursday, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said that the roadmap for the primaries would soon be announced. He said:
We as ZANU PF will begin internal primary elections from next week. Our commissar Dr. Mike Bimha will give the programme.
Mnangagwa urged party members to ensure that the primaries are conducted in a fair and transparent manner.
ZANU PF last conducted primary elections in January 2022 ahead of the House of National Assembly and Local Authorities by-elections that were held on 26 March.
The elections were reportedly characterised by allegations of vote-buying, missing names on the voters’ roll, and violence.
