ZANU-PF’s National Appeals and Review Committee of the Central Committee that will preside over the fate of expelled or suspended members is set to deal with 36 cases, Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa said yesterday.
Addressing mourners at the burial of former Zanu-PF Women’s League Secretary for Administration, Cde Esphina Nhari, at the Gweru provincial heroes’ acre, Cde Mnangagwa said the late war heroine’s case would also be dealt with posthumously.
“Cde Nhari rose through the ranks to become the Zanu-PF Women’s League Secretary for Administration up to the time she was suspended but President Mugabe looked at the whole process of suspensions which saw dozens of party members being suspended and said No! He then came up with the National Appeals and Review Committee of the Central Committee,” said the VP.
Cde Nhari, who was handed a three-year suspension for chanting a slogan, “Down with G40”, had appealed against her suspension.
The new tribunal, chaired by Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko, has 10 other Central Committee members, one from each province.
The other members of the new committee are: Cdes Jacob Mudenda (Matabeleland North), Paul Mangwana (Masvingo), Ellen Gwaradzimba (Manicaland), Absolom Sikhosana (Bulawayo), Tabitha Kanengoni (Mashonaland Central), Sydney Sekeramayi (Mashonaland East), Douglas Mombeshora (Mashonaland West), Tambudzani Mohadi (Matabeleland South), Melody Dziva (Midlands) and Sabina Thembani (Harare).
Cde Patrick Chinamasa chairs the National Disciplinary Committee.
