President Mugabe, who is the party’s First Secretary, announced the Politburo decision to disband the DCCs at a Central Committee meeting in Harare last week.
Some powerful Zanu-PF members were allegedly manipulating the DCCs causing unnecessary tension and divisions in the revolutionary party.
Cde Mutasa also confirmed the development but said full details on the pending visits would be announced at the appropriate time.
Announcing the disbanding of the DCCs last week, President Mugabe said: “As we discussed the matter, we decided that the Central Committee should look at the issue of DCCs and we came to the conclusion that they are serving a divisive process. They are an organ which must go. The Politburo came to the conclusion that DCCs must be repealed. A recommendation would be made to the Central Committee so that it could remove the organ called the DCC from the party.”
He said while the organ was created to co-ordinate work so that the management of party structures could be made easy, they had made things more difficult.
“We are worried the DCC has become a weapon used to divide the party,” President Mugabe said.
There have been reports of imposition of candidates during the elections, especially in Masvingo and Manicaland.
