Is ZANU PF Discussing Government Or Party Issues In Politburo?
Published: 2016 August 04 04:24:10 (2176 Views)


Zimbabwean government led by President Robert Mugabe continues in its ill habit of convening national issues in a closed door "ZANU PF members only" Poliburo meeting amid criticism that the issues discussed there are not tailored for the nation as a whole but ZANU PF.
 
Zanu PF held a Politburo meeting yesterday concurrently with an "No To Bond Notes" demonstration held on the same day. Zanu PF has been forced to revise its strategies amid a volatile situation in the country.

Addressing journalists on the Paolitburo meeting Zanu-PF secretary for Administration Ignatius Chombo revealed that a number of state issues had been discussed.

Chombo said the Politburo received a detailed report on Zim-Asset from Transport and Infrastructural Development Minister Dr Jorum Gumbo who gave an update on various projects being undertaken by his ministry.

“Under the Zim-Asset, the report mainly dealt with transport infrastructure and stated the many roads that are being rehabilitated especially regional trade corridors,” said Chombo.

“These include the now completed Plumtree-Mutare (highway) stretching for 835km, Beitbridge-Harare — this is expected to cost US$2, 7 billion and resources are being put together under the public-private-partnership.

“The feasibility studies for Beitbridge-Bulawayo-Victoria Falls and Harare-Nyamapanda (highways) are now underway. These will also be embarked on a triple P arrangement. Harare International Airport – the runway for Harare International Airport is being rehabilitated and progress is at 65 percent as we speak.

“JM Nkomo Airport – this airport is being upgraded continuously and equipment is already on the site. The Victoria Falls Airport is also complete and work is now in progress to convert the old terminal to a domestic terminal building.”

In his capacity as secretary for administration, Chombo said he delivered a report on the preparations of the party’s 16th National People’s Conference to be held in Masvingo in December.
