Zimbabwe’s ruling party meets

A routine Zanu-PF Politburo meeting is underway in Harare, with the ruling party’s Annual National People’s Conference and the 2018 harmonised elections topping the agenda.

The Sunday Mail could not establish whether the meeting would also hear Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s scheduled response to Professor Jonathan Moyo’s claims that he was pursuing a successionist agenda.

The meeting kicked off at party headquarters at roughly 14:30 pm after the arrival of President Mugabe and First Lady Amai Grace Mugabe.

The President was in a jovial mood as he joked with several Politburo members.
