By James Gwati-There will be a Zanu PF politburo meeting at the party’s headquarters which is highly likely to discuss who is going to succeed the disgraced former Vice President, Kembo Mohadi.

The Politburo is Zanu PF’s highest decision-making body.

Mohadi resigned on Monday after audio recordings of him inviting some married women for unprotected sex in his office and hotels went viral on social media.

In a statement Monday, Zanu PF spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo announced the meeting.

Moyo, however, did not announce the agenda of tomorrow’s meeting besides urging members to be punctual.

“The Secretary for Administration Cde Dr O. M Mpofu wishes to advise all members that there shall be a Politburo meeting to be held on Wednesday 3rd March 2021 (tomorrow) at the Home of the People’s Revolution, Zanu PF headquarters commencing 1000hrs,” he said.

Speculation has it that Obert Mpofu and Simon Khaya Moyo stand equal chances of being appointed Vice President, taking over from Mohadi.

Mpofu is known for failing to account for the multi-million dollar properties he owns in Bulawayo and Victoria Falls. He was also accused by former President Robert Mugabe of disappearing US$15 billion Diamond money when he was the Mines Minister during the tenure of the Unity Government of MDC and Zanu PF.

Khaya Moyo on the other hand was a member of former Vice President Joice Mujuru’s Gamatox faction. Mujuru and Mnangagwa ran opposing camps that wanted to ouster and succeed Mugabe.

He (Khaya Moyo) was also used by the late Bob to deliver a letter that fired Mnangagwa in 2017. The letter did not only fire Ngwena but also talked about his disrespect and disloyalty to Zanu PF.

Both Mpofu and Moyo are the most senior Zapu surviving cadres.
