ZANU PF’s central committee is set to make a decision on Harare commission chairperson Sekesai Makwavarara’s future today.
align=justify>The ruling party’s secretary for Information Nathan Shamuyarira yesterday told the Zimbabwe Independent that Makwavarara was one of the top issues at the central committee’s meeting today considering the concerns raised by the party’s Harare province and ratepayers.
“It’s one of the issues we are going to discuss in the central committee tomorrow (today),” Shamuyarira said yesterday. “Phone me on Saturday, I will be in a position to comment on the matter.”
Divisions amongst Zanu PF loyalists over the mayoral issue have widened over the past month, with party cadres questioning Makwavarara’s qualifications and party credentials, particularly for someone who abandoned it to join the opposition MDC nearly six years ago. Highly-placed sources in the ruling party said the Zanu PF Harare provincial executive’s vote of no confidence in Makwavarara had forced the politburo to intervene by setting up a committee to probe her on the allegations brought up by Harare.
“The central committee will consider the findings of the committee and make a decision on Makwavarara’s future,” a source said.
