Mugabe Wants Dabengwa to Rejoin Zanu PF

HARARE, November 6 2008 - President Robert Mugabe reportedly wants ex Zanu PF politburo member, Dumiso Dabengwa, to rejoin the party in a bid to stall moves to revive PF Zapu and save the 1987 Unity Accord.

The unity Accord is facing collapse following the breakaway by disgruntled former PF Zapu members.

Dabengwa, who quit Zanu PF in March this year, is reportedly on the forefront of PF Zapu’s revival.

Sources say Mugabe has since extended an olive branch to Dabengwa, begging him to reconsider returning to the ruling party, as he fears that the breakaway could result in total disintegration of the liberation movement.

Mugabe, according to sources, has since sent Angeline Masuku, the Matabeleland South governor to convince Dabengwa to rejoin Zanu PF.

Masuku reportedly convened a meeting on October 19 at her farm where she informed 35 Bulawayo Central committee members about Mugabe’s desire to have Dabengwa back in Zanu PF.

The members were then tasked to convince Dabengwa to concede to Mugabe’s wish.

Masuku confirmed having held a meeting with central committee members at her farm but could not be drawn to confirm whether she had been tasked to hold such a meeting by Mugabe.

Dabengwa also confirmed to RadioVOP that Zanu PF officials want him back in the party and confirmed that Masuku had approached him on behalf of Mugabe. Dabengwa however said he was never going to rejoin Zanu PF.
