The 310th ordinary session of the Zanu PF Politburo ended at the party headquarters in Harare with a resolution that the recent sacking of Charles Tawengwa from the Harare Provincial Chair is null and void.

The Politburo also concluded that Justice Zvandasara and his team that had been elevated should vacate the provincial offices.

Briefing journalists after the meeting this evening, Zanu-PF Secretary for Administration, Dr Ignatious Chombo said the decision was taken to prevent disorder in the party and to warn other provinces that disorder will not be tolerated.

Regarding the issue of the party's National Political Commissar, Saviour Kasukuwere who is facing allegations of imposing candidates and working to unseat the President, Dr Chombo said the issue is still being deliberated upon by the presidium.

This follows the tabling of the report by the probe team led by the National Assembly Speaker, Advocate Jacob Mudenda.

In his opening remarks at the meeting, President Robert Mugabe said the Politburo meeting is being held in the backdrop of a bumper harvest due to the good rains and good planning.

He urged relevant authorities to ensure that adequate storage space and silos are in place to keep the harvest, adding that the government may consider selling the excess grain to neighbouring countries.

The Politburo meeting was also briefed on preparations for this Friday's Presidential Youth Interface rally to be held in Lupane, Matabeleland North Province.
