ZANU-PF’s secretary for security Cde Lovemore Matuke has warned the party’s provincial coordinating committee (PCC) election aspiring candidates against cheating and violence.
Cde Matuke, who is leading the Mashonaland West provincial elections told The Herald this morning that the party would not hesitate to expel anyone found wanting.
Said Cde Matuke: “These are simply the party’s management positions’ elections and after the election, we expect everyone to move on as a united force towards 2023 harmonised elections.
“Cheating is a serious offence which we won’t condone in the party. Those found wanting, will be expelled from the party.”
