THE Zanu-PF Politburo is meeting tomorrow to discuss various issues affecting the party and general state of the economy. 

Party secretary for administration Cde Ignatius Chombo confirmed the meeting.Although he could not divulge the agenda of the meeting, The Herald understands that latest political developments and the economy would take centre stage.

Zanu-PF sources said Finance and Economic Development Minister Patrick Chinamasa could give an update on measures being implemented by Government to improve the economy.
Last month, Minister Chinamasa presented several intervention measures to the party’s Central Committee, which he said were at various stages of implementation.

Among the interventions, Minister Chinamasa said Government had introduced cash withdrawal limits and had put in place mechanisms to ensure that companies, especially those in the retail sector bank their money.

Said the source: “Another aspect that can be up for discussion is the issue of appeals that are still pending. Cde Sydney Sekeramayi could also give a report on the current developments in the war veterans sector, where some few individuals are seeking to cause confusion in that critical arm. You know Zanu-PF and war veterans cannot be separated so it is important that the party establish the origins of that document disguised as a war veterans’ communiqué.”

War veterans have since put in motion the process of electing a new executive following the expulsion of Mr Chris Mutsvangwa from Zanu-PF. President Mugabe, as the patron of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association, had also advised the freedom fighters to elect a new leadership.
