“This serves as a directive to all the ZANU-PF parliamentary candidates that participated and did not succeed in the just-ended harmonised elections to surrender the party vehicles that were allocated to them to the Zanu PF party headquarters by Wednesday, 4 October 2023 without fail. This is pursuant to the circular that was issued before, followed by a decision made by the party leadership at the Politburo Meeting held on 28 September 2023. All Provincial Chairpersons are directed to ensure that this directive is implemented without fail. Your cooperation on this matter will be greatly appreciated.”
