ZANU PF Primary Elections Rerun On Saturday

ZANU PF will hold primary election reruns on 15 April in Mbare, Churu, Gokwe-Nembudziya, and Zvimba West constituencies, and on 22 April in Insiza South.

Voting will take place from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., after which vote counting will begin and conclude by 6 p.m.

ZANU PF National Political Commissar Mike Bimha said at a press conference on Thursday night that the results would be relayed to the Constituency Command Centre, which would then advise the National Command Centre.

He said formal preliminary results will be announced on Monday next week. The Herald quoted Bimha as saying:

The ad-hoc special committee has been meeting for several days to make sure that each and every complaint is received and considered and recommendations made to the Politburo.

Now that the reruns will be conducted, the tribunal will no longer meet to consider complaints from the primaries.

If the tribunal is going to sit, they will probably be sitting to consider complaints from the re-runs, but I don’t expect any.

In order to make sure that we have a smooth rerun, we have deployed Politburo members to the five constituencies. They will be at the Constituency Command Centre.

We have deployed two members of the Politburo to each constituency and these constituencies have varying numbers of polling stations and each polling centre will have a Central Committee member to supervise the elections at that polling station.

He issued a warning that any candidate who is accused of using violence will be disqualified.

There will be 10 polling locations in the Mbare constituency, 25 in Churu, 24 in Zvimba West, 35 in Insiza South, and 28 in Gokwe-Nembudziya.

The rerun in Churu will be overseen by Paul Mangwana and Kenneth Musanhi, in Mbare by Engelbert Rugeje and Mackenzie Ncube, in Zvimba West by Simbarashe Mumbengegwi and Elifas Mashaba, and in Gokwe-Nembudziya by Douglas Mombeshora and Michael Nyambuya.
