A number of disgruntled losers in the recent ZANU PF District Coordinating Committee (DCC) elections have filed appeals to the governing party’s commissariat and legal department challenging the results, Business Times can report.
The party’s political commissar, Victor Matemadanda this week said his department was flooded with appeals and complaints over the DCC results.
There are complaints of electoral irregularities in the DCC elections held on December 5 and 6 to choose new political leaderships in eight ZANU PF administrative provinces except for Harare and Bulawayo Provinces which held their elections earlier this year.
“We are looking at each case of complaints and we shall deal with it and we are working with our legal department led by Paul Mangwana.
We are happy that no one is going to the courts.
The party members are following our party internal structures to appeal,” Matemadanda told Business Times.
Matemadanda, however, did not disclose the identity of the party members who have lodged appeals.
He said most of the Provincial DCC results had been approved by the party Politburo.
But, re-runs have been ordered in Tsholotsho, Makonde and Mutare Districts, that were marred by irregularities.
The re-runs have been slated for December 27.
Last week, the ZANU PF Politburo endorsed the elections of many DCC results with President Emmerson Mnangagwa appealing to his party members to follow the party channels in lodging their appeals.
