ZANU (PF) structures in shambles: Shamhu

Zanu (PF) grassroots structures countrywide are in a shambles and the party is currently in a last ditch effort to make amends to avoid an embarrassing defeat in the forthcoming elections.

Webster Shamhu, the party’s Political Commissar, told delegates at the Mashonaland West Inter-district conference here that there is need to act urgently.

“It is imperative that we rejuvenate the party and put it into a state of readiness in preparation for elections,” said Shamhu, who is also Minister of Information. .

He also revealed that the party failed to meet a March 2011 deadline to re-organise its structures right down to village and cell levels due to lack of resources.

“Everyone should be involved in putting in place village and cell structures irrespective of position in the party if we are to win the elections,” he said.

In February last year, President Robert Mugabe told an extra-ordinary session of the party’s Central Committee that reorganisation of grassroots structures was one of the biggest challenges threatening the party.

However, to date, the issue of acting upon the problem is seemingly an uphill task for the party determined to further Mugabe’s autocratic three decade-long stranglehold on power.
