Following the successful holding of the recent ZANU-PF provincial elections, the ruling party is set to hand over the administration of provinces to the elected executives.

The ruling Party has directed that Provincial Coordinating Committees hold meetings on 8 January 2022 and supervise the allocation of other positions of the Provincial Executive Committees.

According to a circular dated 6 January 2022, from the ZANU-PF National Secretary for Commissariat Dr Mike Bimha, to team leaders of 2022 Provincial Elections Supervisory Committees, all winning candidates including Provincial Chairpersons must attend the meetings.

“As directed by the Extra-Ordinary Session of the Politburo held at ZANU-PF Headquarters on 5 January 2022, leaders of teams tasked with supervision of Provincial Elections, are hereby requested to convene meetings in their respective Provinces on Saturday 8 January 2022 and superintend over the allocation of other positions of the Provincial Executive Committees.

“All winning candidates, inclusive of Provincial Chairpersons of the three wings and other positions in the provincial Main Wing, Women`s League and Youth League must be invited to attend the meetings at their respective Provincial Headquarters. Team leaders should hand over administration of the Provinces to the newly elected Provincial Executive Committees and should submit the lists of the newly elected Provincial Executive Committees to the Commissariat Department at Party Headquarters by 1600 hours, 10 January 2022,” reads part of the Statement.

The election of new provincial leaders was confirmed this week by the Politburo, setting the stage for rejuvenation ahead of the March by-elections and the 2023 harmonised elections.

Meanwhile the newly elected provincial chairpersons have declared their readiness to mobilise new members to ensure the party secures five million votes in next year`s harmonised election.
