ZANU-PF has warned against purging members and has since promised that a definitive party position is expected to come out of the Extraordinary Congress that will be held next month.
Party spokesperson Ambassador Simon Khaya Moyo yesterday directed party members to stop holding provincial executive council (PEC) meetings that were ostensibly meant to blacklist or fire members from the revolutionary party.
In an interview, Ambassador Khaya Moyo said party members should desist from holding meetings that are not sanctioned by the party.
“As the Zanu-PF party spokesperson, my attention has been drawn to the fact that some provinces are holding provincial executive council or provincial coordinating committee meetings, or both, and in the process purging some members from the party,” he said.
“All provinces are directed to stop such processes forthwith until after the Extraordinary Congress, where the party shall issue further instructions as to the due procedures to be followed in implementing recent Central Committee resolutions to provincial structures.”
He said only the Extraordinary Congress, which is to be held in a two weeks’ time, will outline the route the party has to follow.
Delegates that are supposed to attend the Extraordinary Congress, Ambassador Khaya Moyo said, have all been communicated to though their provincial chairpersons.
“Delegates to the Congress, category-by-category and the numbers, are already known by provincial chairpersons. There is therefore no need for the current shenanigans. Anyone not heeding this directive shall face the full wrath of disciplinary action,” he said.
