Zanu-PF national chairman Cde Simon Khaya Moyo has said the party must depend on its strength without trying to gauge itself against opposition parties and counter revolutionaries. Cde Khaya Moyo made the remarks in his speech at the 6th Zanu-PF National People’s Congress which opened in Harare on Thursday.

He said Zanu-PF must strengthen itself regardless of the fate of the opposition parties and counter revolutionaries.

“Let us not relax on the political front as we see opposition parties in tatters, for their confusion cannot be translated into our strength,” said Cde Khaya Moyo.

“We are better when we are g than to measure ourselves against mediocre parties.”

Cde Khaya Moyo chronicled the speeches he made at past Zanu-PF conferences, where he warned against some troubles affecting the party at the moment.

He said he had talked about fighting corruption, factionalism and vote-buying in his five years in office as the party’s national chairman.

At the 11th Annual People’s Conference in Mutare in 2010, Cde Khaya Moyo warned against factionalism and called on the party members to unite.

Her also urged the party leadership to remain accountable to the people they represent.

Zanu-PF has been affected by factionalism, which has since claimed the scalps of Vice President Joice Mujuru who has excluded herself from the congress.

VP Mujuru is facing a litany of accusations, including a plot to assassinate President Mugabe, corruption and abuse of office.

She has been working with her cabal in the top hierarchy of the party to cause disunity and divide the party.

Two of the VP’s close confidantes, former party spokesperson Mr Rugare Gumbo and former war veterans leader Mr Jabulani Sibanda, have since been expelled for their role in undermining the President.

President Mugabe has since revealed that VP Mujuru and those of her ilk have been out to get him killed to further her ambitions.
