Midlands Prepares For By-Elections

By Branton Matondo.

Zanu Pf head in Midlands province called for Kwekwe top brass to desist from divisions amid party restructuring and upcoming Kwekwe primary elections.

Midlands Chairperson for Zanu Pf Engineer McKenzie Ncube, while addressing media practitioners said that the situation in Kwekwe is unacceptable and party members there should desist from antagonism.

“We know the incidents which happened in Kwekwe. We (Zanu PF Midlands) have to face them in a cool mannered way so that we get the problems coming from the support base of the respective camps. It is totally unnecessary to be antagonistic for primary elections. Its not the last position in Zanu PF”.

He added that unhealthy issues emanating from Kwekwe will be deliberated by Honorable Obert Mpofu.
Kwekwe has and continues to witness the presence of two Zanu Pf camps pitting Amaveni based Energy Ncube and Kandros Mugabe who currently holds a Treasury position at Kwekwe District Coordinating Committee (DCC).

Addressing journalist from Kwekwe, Kwekwe District Coordinating Committee (DCC treasurer Kandros Mugabe said that party members in Kwekwe need to be united at this time and moment.

“Kwekwe district has an element of discord. There is a tendency of not supporting each other, especially support for those in power. My recent experience at Chitepo School of Ideology rammed the already existing party foundations. Come primary elections, its victory after victory for Mugabe”.

Kandros Mugabe, who was once labelled as a handler of the G40 cabal in 2018, just after President Mnangagwa electoral clinch cleared the air saying that he continues to stand alongside President Mnangagwa.

“I was once called a G40 but have you forgotten the massive celebrations l held at Kwekwe Sports Club to commemorate Baba Mnangagwa’s win or have you forgotten the fact that my district, Dambudzo is the only urban based poll to clinch victory against the opposition in 2018”.

Attempts to reach Energy Ncube where fruitless meanwhile Kwekwe District Election Officer Mr Assan Mukwanazi said that everything is in order for primary elections.

“Procedures of voter registration are still on going. We are just waiting for the word go to hold electoral processes”, said Mukwanazi.

Zanu PF have already began outreach programme in Mberengwa, Shurugwi and Zvishavane while Gweru, Kwekwe and Gokwe North/South are yet to be reached.
