Bigwigs panic over Zanu-PF congress





The dog eat dog war between the two major Zanu-PF factions angling to influence President Robert Mugabe's hotly-contested succession set to get nastier after the ruling party decided to cancel its annual conference in December and replace it with a special congress.

Insiders told the Daily News yesterday that the decision to cancel the conference, which was scheduled to be held in Gwanda this year, had escalated the deadly battle for the control of the party and its structures in the burning former liberation movement.

The fear of a new circus of long knives (after the disputed 2014 'elective congress' which ousted former Vice President JoiceMujuru from office) is also reviving its calls for an amendment of the party's constitution to re-introduce a clause that compels the party to have a woman in the presidium.

Insiders in the party and political analysts agree that the move is 'a transparent plot' to oust Mnangagwa, and possibly replace him with Grace.
