Staff Reporter

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has warned that no-one should claim ownership of ZANU PF except the people and reiterated that unbecoming behaviour will not be tolerated within the Party.

Addressing the 359th session of the ZANU PF Politburo last Saturday, the President said that acts of violence and political chicanery will not be tolerated in ZANU PF.

“Acts of violence and political chicanery, sowing divisions will never be tolerated. The Party remains supreme and we are a Party that has a revolutionary legacy and let no one at any stage of our development seek to undermine or destroy this history,” said the President.

The President added that ZANU PF was a colossal Party on the basis of its principles, values and norms. He further said that ZANU PF was the people’s party and no one should claim ownership and have sense of entitlement of the party.

President Mnangagwa said all rogue elements within the party who are bent on causing divisions will be decisively dealt with.

“Irregularities and political chicanery across party structures must be decisively dealt with and expunged from the party,” said the President.

The President called upon all Party leaders to provide astute leadership so that the objectives of Vision 2030 could be achieved.

“As leaders of the Politburo and Central Committee level, we must provide leadership by addressing lower structures, ensuring unity and that everyone is pulling in one direction which is aimed at accelerating the achievement of the Vision 2030,”added the President.

President Mnangagwa also urged Party structures to work hard in mobilising people to vote for the Party and emphasised that victory in the coming by elections slatted for 26 March this year, should be a launch-pad to a resounding win of the 2023 general elections.
