and reflection. The party is focused on maintaining its revolutionary principles,” he said.
Cde Mutasa said the new dispensation gives districts autonomy.
“Next week (this week), we are going to start the visits in the Matabeleland provinces and engage with party officials to map the way forward. Obviously, there were some who held influential positions in the DCCs.
Zanu-PF national political commissar Cde Webster Shamu said the DCCs were destroying the party.
The party then tasked Cde Shamu to gather information regarding the elections with a view to charting the way forward. Addressing the Zanu-PF Central Committee in Harare last Friday, President Mugabe, who is the party’s First Secretary, said the decision to disband the DCCs was taken at Wednesday’s Politburo meeting.
