Zanu PF holds primaries inside police camp

By Staff Reporter

ZANU PF displayed their disdain for State independence when it held its primary elections inside the Chikurubi Support Unit police camp on Sunday afternoon.

Even worse, the party roped in some police officers to help run the polls.

The ruling party primaries were called for the weekend to elect candidates to represent the party in parliamentary, women’s quota, senatorial and council elections due this year.

Zanu PF has come under fire for conflating both State and party with some State officials who should ordinarily show impartiality often seen dressed in Zanu PF regalia.

Security commanders also make it a habit to attend Zanu PF congresses and conferences.

Information and Broadcasting Services permanent secretary and civil servant George Charamba was last year paraded for a tongue lashing by then first lady Grace Mugabe while putting on a Zanu PF shirt.

A police officer (pictured) in uniform was once also seen waving a clenched fist at a Zanu PF function.
