Zanu-PF's Women's League is facing stiff resistance from politburo hardliners opposed to its proposal to reserve seats for aspiring female legislators, saying the move compromised the calibre of candidates who can deliver victory against the MDC-T.

The fight over the women's proposal erupted in last week's politburo meeting where Zanu-PF's supreme body was supposed to finalise the primary election guidelines to pave way for internal polls.

A fresh clash exploded among the bigwigs who vociferously opposed Women's League secretary Oppah Muchinguri's plan to ring-fence aspiring female legislators.
