ZANU PF is holding its Politburo meeting today at its headquarters in Harare.

In a statement, the party’s acting secretary for Information and Publicity Cde Patrick Chinamasa urged members to be punctual.

“The secretary for Administration Cde Dr OM Mpofu wishes to advise all members that there shall be a Politburo meeting to be held on Wednesday 25 November 2020 at the home of the People’s Revolution ZANU PF Headquarters commencing 10am,” reads the statement.

All members are expected to be seated by 9.45am.

A number of issues, including the ongoing District Coordinating Committee (DCC) elections, that have exposed serious factional fights in the party would be discussed.

This comes as the countdown to the highly-divisive DCC elections has been marred by allegations of dirty money changing hands — amid unproven claims that remnants of the party’s vanquished Generation 40 (G40) faction are burning the midnight oil to influence the outcome of the polls, in an alleged bid to engineer their political comeback.

Amid the fierce tussling over the DCCs, Zanu PF insiders have previously indicated that ambitious bigwigs were fighting to influence the outcome of the internal polls which, when fully constituted, would elect the ruling party’s provincial executives.

The party has already put in place DCC structures in Harare and Bulawayo, with the restructuring of the two metropolitan provinces already underway.

DCCs were reintroduced after the party dissolved Harare and Bulawayo provincial party structures.
