ZANU PF First Secretary, President Emmerson Mnangagwa has called on party members who participated in the recent provincial elections to find each other and work towards the growth of the party.

The ruling party had a housekeeping process recently in which structures were electing provincial chairpersons.

Save for a few appeals, the voting went on with little incident.

In his speech today at the 359th session of the Politburo, President Mnangagwa commended everyone who was involved in the election process for their dedication.

He said the contestations which emerged, should be interpreted positively, as they communicate the good standing of ZANU PF as a political organisation.

“This shows that the Party is alive and strong. Let us build on this vibrancy by nurturing and strengthening our internal democratic culture and mobilization ecosystem,” said President Mnangagwa.

Today, ZANU PF discussed at length reports from the polls.

President Mnangagwa urged magnanimity among the participants.

“As we deliberate on the report of the elections, I urge all members of the Party to be mindful of the fact that in our Party there are no winners or losers. It is the people and ultimately the Party that wins.

Party cadres who did not make it in the recent elections must avail themselves, their experiences, skills and competencies to build and grow our mass Party,” said President Mnangagwa.


“Just as iron sharpens iron, the spirit of camaraderie and collegiality must be harnessed as we all serve this great party ZANUPF and the nation as whole. An election lost must never dampen the revolutionary spirit of the cadre but inspire them to learn, develop and mature in their political career. In our dealings members must conduct themselves honorably, informed by the Party constitution, rules, procedures, principles and ethos,” President Mnangagwa added.

He reminded all leaders, including those who were chosen to always listen to the aspirations of the people at every level, reiterating that constitutionalism, unity, peace, harmony, and development remain the absolute compass for now and the future.

President Mnangagwa called for peace and unity in the country as it is a key ingredient for development and economic growth.

The provincial structures will have their first major tests in the forthcoming by-elections being held early next year.
