ZANU-PF National Political Commissar Victor Matemadanda yesterday warned party members against meddling in political processes in other provinces as this causes divisions.

Matemadanda made the remarks while addressing party members at Zanu-PF Bulawayo provincial headquarters at Davies Hall during a meeting to announce the newly elected district coordinating committee (DCC) members.

He said he had received information that some party members from other provinces were trying to influence the outcome of the Bulawayo DCC elections.

"The Bulawayo leadership has complained about this interference from other provinces which is not allowed. Those that think they are better off in Bulawayo must transfer and join Bulawayo. If you are in Matabeleland South, Midlands, Masvingo and even Matabeleland North be content with politics of your province," he said.

Matemadanda said there were some members in the province who came up with a list of their preferred candidates in a bid to manipulate the party's electoral processes.

"I've got the papers and I'm going to submit them to the Politburo to decide on what action to take," said Matemadanda.

He said the lists caused unnecessary divisions in the party, hence his decision to take the matter up with the Politburo.

He said Bulawayo province should do away with factions as this was detrimental to building harmony within  the party. Matemadanda said the party's DCC members hade a role in rebuilding the party from grassroots and should start mobilising members.

In Area One Raymond Mtomba won the chairmanship deputised by Nkosana Mkandla while in Area 2 Paul Mutara won the chairmanship with Ntandeyenkosi Mlilo as the deputy.

Former Njube-Lobengula MP Maidei Mpala won the Area 3 chair and will be deputised by Nkonzo Mhlanga while in Area 4 Obert Msindo was elected chair with Dennis Sibanda his deputy.

Zowa Msika is chairman of Area 5 and is deputised by Khanien Ngwenya.
