Zimbabwe African Peoples' Union Bulawayo Province had its executive committee dissolved as of Sunday 27 November 2016.

This comes as a result of a resolution of the National Executive Council meeting of Sunday 20 November 2016, after NEC realized that the province was underperforming when compared to other provinces in the Southern Region.

It was noted, sadly, that the province of Bulawayo had no concrete programs in place and that had a knock on the party structures and its growth in Bulawayo, that is bearing in mind the strategic importance of Bulawayo to the party and the broader body politic.

The National Chairman announced an interim committee to take charge of the affairs of Bulawayo. The committee is chaired by Mr. Cosmas Z Mafu, a member of the National Executive. He will be assisted by National Peoples Council members Mrs. Siphiwe Bafana, Mr. Gibson Sikhosana. Other members are Mr. Pharis Sola, Mrs. Margaret Ndiweni Mashasha and Mr. Canaan Ncube.

A clear outline of terms of reference was given to the interim committee that includes its mandate and lifespan.

National Organizing Department will closely work with the interim committee and province to pave way for the establishment of a new provincial leadership through an elective provincial conference.
