The majority of ZANU PF members shunned an emergency structures audit on Saturday, leaving party leaders worried.
Few people turned up for the cell verification process of the faction-riddled ruling party while in some places it failed to take place at all.
This development has left party leaders scratching leaders fearful of a loss in next year’s general elections.
NewZimbabwe.com reported sources from across the country as saying that the exercise was marred by poor turnout.
In Beitbridge, former State vice president Kembo Mohadi had to cancel the process after party members failed to come for the audit.
Mohadi was left disappointed and demanded unity among ZANU PF officials. He said:
We will be back here on July 2 and I want to see an improvement.
On that day I want to see faces and not just a register. It’s just one day and we must show commitment.
I am disappointed with this lack of commitment. We need unity and cohesion within the party.
Cells should develop into branches to show there is growth within the party.
There were also a poor turnout in Bikita, Hurungwe, Chivhu, Gwanda, Mutare, Chiredzi, Chipinge, Chegutu and Kadoma.
In some districts, the cell audit meetings were reportedly cancelled after people stayed away in their hundreds.
