THE Zanu PF leadership in Mashonaland East province is considering dissolving its cell structures ahead of next year’s elections claiming they were not representative enough.
Addressing a regional coordinating committee meeting in Marondera on Sunday, provincial chairperson Daniel Garwe said the party would set up new structures.
“Here in Marondera, we all know that the cell structures favour only two individuals — I won’t mention their names. The cell structures should benefit the party, Zanu PF and President (Emmerson) Mnangagwa. We are going to come up with new cell structures in Marondera,” Garwe said.
A Zanu PF candidate, Ignatius Mateveke, lost to Citizens Coalition for Change candidate Caston Matewu in the March 26 by-elections.
The defeat did not go well with some party members, who accused some leaders of failing to mobilise enough support for the party. There are reports that some of the cell members voted for the opposition.
Meanwhile, a party mobilising team led by politburo member David Parirenyatwa will begin moving around the province to mobilise people to register to vote.
It would also assist them to get national identification documents.
