Mohadi to supervise setting up of Byo DCCs

ZANU-PF Second Secretary and Vice President Kembo Mohadi will next week lead a team to supervise the setting up of District Coordinating Committees (DCCs) in Bulawayo.

This comes after the successful establishment of DCCs in Harare last month.

VP Mohadi is in charge of the restructuring of Bulawayo Province following the decision by President Mnangagwa to dissolve the Harare and Bulawayo provincial party structures.

DCCs were disbanded in 2012 after it was felt that they had been hijacked by elements that sought to manipulate party structures to foment factionalism and disharmony.

In an interview yesterday, Zanu PF national political commissar Victor Matemadanda said the setting up of Bulawayo structures will start with a Provincial Coordinating Committee (PCC) meeting on Monday next week to lay the ground rules.

"There is need for setting up of registers, vetting of members who are expected to participate, printing of ballot box and finally conduction of the election.

"The process is expected to take one and a half weeks to ensure we set proper structures," said Matemadanda.

Chairpersons from the party's other provinces are expected to assist in monitoring the setting up of the structures.

The DCCs are expected to play a pivotal role in the co-ordination of party activities.

All card-carrying Zanu-PF members in Bulawayo will be eligible to vote for members of the proposed DCCs, whose prospective candidates will be vetted next week after the submission of their CVs.

Zanu-PF is starting from the DCCs as the basis of setting up the party structures in Harare and Bulawayo since the provincial structures were dissolved earlier this year by President Mnangagwa after reports of factionalism and divisions dogged the restructuring process.

Bulawayo province comprises five Zones and the restructuring programme will proceed to deal with the other provinces which have not been facing any challenges in terms of organisation.

The restructuring of Harare and Bulawayo is meant to prepare the party for 2023 elections.
