ZANU PF has made a number of substantive appointments to fill up critical positions which had become vacant.

In a press statement after today`s session of the Politburo at the ruling party`s headquarters, Cde Mike Bimha, who was until today announced the changes.

War Veteran’s leader Cde Christopher Mutsvangwa becomes the revolutionary party’s new Secretary for Information and Publicity succeeding the late spokesperson Ambassador Simon Khaya Moyo who succumbed to chronic cancer late November 2021.

Cde Bimha becomes the substantive National Political Commissar for the revolutionary party replacing Cde Patrick Chinamasa who has been acting in the capacity for a while.

’As this is my last Press Conference as the Acting Secretary for Information and Publicity and Party Spokesperson, I would like to thank you all for working together and for the support you gave us and I wish that this continues. I want to congratulate my colleague here Cde Chis Mutsvangwa for being appointed the substantive Secretary for Information and Publicity,” said Cde Bimha told the media.

Cde Bimha faces the onerous task of completing the party’s restructuring process which is expected to culminate in election of substantive Provincial Chairpersons in time for the envisaged by-election in March 2022.

ZANU PF is yet to fill up the Provincial Chairpersons’ posts which have seen protracted campaigns in all Provinces by aspiring candidates.

Cde Bimha takes over the mobilisation and structural organisation of the party which is responsible for growing party membership.

Such administrative processes as primary elections are under his purview.

“Elections will be held before Christmas. I do not have exact dates since we are yet to do a hand over take over of the department with my predecessor Cde Patrick Chinamasa, but rest assured, we will hold Provincial elections before this year ends,” said Cde Bimha.

Addressing the Politburo session, President Mnangagwa hinted that he will soon proclaim dates for by-elections which are penciled for March next year.
