President of the Chief’s Council, Chief Fortune Charumbira yesterday reassured delegates at the just ended ZANU-PF 19th Annual National People’s Conference that there is unity among Party top leadership.

He rubbished the rumours being churned through social media that there was a power struggle between the President and First Secretary of the Ruling Party, H.E. Cde Dr. Emmerson Mnangagwa and Vice President, Rtd Gen. Cde Constantino Chiwenga saying it was a figment of imaginations of the enemy who everyday dreams of a discordant ZANU PF.

“The enemy is trying to use you vice president Chiwenga and you must not remain quiet.
These two have been friends since before President Mnangagwa was President,” said Chief Charumbira.

He also said in his solidarity speech, ZANU PF and Chief’s Council share a great history and that can not be questioned by NGOs and the Press who were not there when it all began.

“There is no need for membership to fear chiefs. We are not here for your positions.
As Chiefs we are the owners of ZANU-PF, War Vets are shareholders and the rest are members,” said Chief Charumbira.

“As Chiefs we also worry when there is infighting in the party, mostly caused by power struggles for positions.
We first saw this during District Coordinating Committee (DCC) elections and we urge you to have free and fair elections,” added Chief Charumbira.

Chief Charumbira also acknowledged the President’s consistency in matters to do with peace, healing and reconciliation in Matebeleland saying he must continue to pursue reconciliation in Matebeleland and parts of Midlands through dialogue on matters to do with Gukurahundi.

He also applauded the activities being carried out by the first lady, saying she has brought more relevance to Indigenous Culture amongst the Women and Youths.
