I’m not Zanu PF Provincial Chairman — Nyanhongo

HARARE South MP Herbert Nyanhongo has denied media reports that he is the chairman of the Zanu PF Harare province.


In a letter to the Zimbabwe Independent this week, Nyanhongo said contrary to earlier reports, he was not the chairman of the Zanu PF Harare province. He said results of elections held last December in which he was elected chairman were nullified.

“The fact of the matter is that I am not the chairman of Zanu PF Harare province. The results of the provincial elections held on December 14 were nullified,” Nyanhogo said.

He said Zanu PF national chairman John Nkomo was currently leading the restructuring of party organs in Harare in preparation for fresh elections and denied ever accusing him of fanning factionalism in the party.

He said: “At no time have I accused the national chairman of fanning factionalism in Zanu PF. To the contrary, I respect and hold in high esteem John Nkomo…”  

The Zanu PF legislator also denied that there was a “Nyanhongo” camp in the Zanu PF Harare province.
“For the record there is no Nyanhongo camp in Zanu PF Harare province. There is no Nyanhongo official,” Nyanhongo said.  

“I am a loyal, dedicated Zanu PF cadre who respects the authority of his superiors. I am actively participating in the restructuring of party organs being spearheaded by the national chairman John Nkomo,” said Nyanhongo. — Staff Writer.
