The Zanu-PF Extraordinary Congress will tomorrow extend the tenure of Central Committee members until 2022 to enable party members to expend energy on development, Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa revealed today.
The five-year term of the Central Committee members was supposed to expire in 2019 when the next Congress was due.
Zanu-PF resolved to hold the Extraordinary Congress, a move that will see the revolutionary party aligning its elective assembly with the national elective calendar.
The country holds harmonised elections next year. Effectively, Zanu-PF is no longer going to have another Congress in 2019.
President Emmerson Mnangagwa told the members that they would stay put for another five years.

“As you are aware, I am completing the term of my predecessor and our past President and First Secretary Cde Robert Mugabe between now and the next elections in a few months,” he said.
