Zanu PF held its primary elections on Saturday in a contest to choose candidates to stand on the ruling party ticket in the forthcoming harmonised elections with the process spilling over into Sunday in some parts of the country.
ZANU PF’s rescheduled elections have been overlapped to Sunday due to what the party says was overwhelming voting response from party supporters.
