Zanu-PF national commissar Cde Saviour Kasukuwere will visit the Midlands province on Thursday on a mission to stem lawlessness and rampant indiscipline.
Cde Kasukuwere was last week mandated by the Politburo to restore order in the restive province.
The directive follows chaos in the province that has seen provincial members holding parallel meetings. Cde Kasukuwere yesterday said: “We are descending on the Midlands province this coming Thursday.”
Last week, Zanu-PF spokesperson Cde Simon Khaya Moyo said the Politburo resolved that further investigations were needed on members who were accused of fuelling factionalism in the Midlands province.
“The national political commissar has been directed to revisit the Midlands province for further investigations and consultations with the provincial leadership before the matter is brought to the National Disciplinary Committee and indeed the Politburo.”
Cde Kasukuwere suspended the party’s provincial chairperson Cde Kizito Chivamba earlier this year and Cde Tapiwa Matangaidze was chosen to lead the province in an acting capacity.
However, some party members felt that Cde Daniel McKenzie Ncube, who deputised Cde Chivamba, should have been chosen to lead the province on a temporary basis.
Most members of the provincial executive defied Cde Kasukuwere and have even refused to attend meetings convened by Cde Matangaidze.
