By A Correspondent- Zanu PF National chairperson Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri said the party would not be allowing any Covid-19 unvaccinated member to attend the party’s annual conference.
Zanu PF is holding its 2021 annual conference next month in Bindura.
Addressing the media after the party’s Politburo meeting in Harare Monday, Zanu PF acting spokesperson Mike Bimha said Muchinguri said they had endorsed the recommendation to reduce the number of delegates attending the national conference well the provincial virtual centres.
“It also endorsed the need to follow the Covid-19 regulations and protocols. This implies that all delegates at each provincial centre must have been vaccinated and tested. They must be able to observe social distancing,” said Bimha.
“The Politburo following deliberations resolved to suspend provincial elections until further notice. This was done to allow party structures to focus on the preparations of the Annual People’s Conference.”
The Politburo also reiterated the position of the party constitution on the youth league which states 35 years as the limit for league membership.
“It was agreed that this provision must be respected unconditionally and that the composition of the youth league at any time must be 35 years and below.
“However, to ensure growth of the national members of the youth league who are now above 35 years, it was resolved that these members will be retrained and redeployed as ex-officio members of the Central Committee.”
