Sources within the party told that serious undisclosed divisions erupted within the party leadership shortly before the start of the meeting which was set for 10am on Tuesday.

The sources indicated that the wrangling within the party leadership continued behind closed doors until a notice was issued late afternoon effectively calling off the scheduled indaba.

“We can’t really say at this stage what the leaders were wrangling about but the debate was very hot and not conducive for the politburo to sit,” said the party sources.

The sources indicated that the politburo will be reconvened on Wednesday morning with calls for the postponement of the central committee to meet later on Thursday a day before the special congress on Friday.

Efforts to get a comment from party spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo failed as he was also closed in the closed door deliberations.
