"The Zanu-PF secretary for Administration Cde Obert Mpofu wishes to advise all Politburo members that there shall be an ordinary session of the Politburo to be convened at the party headquarters today at 1000hrs," he said.

"All members are advised to be seated by 0945 hours sharp."

The Politburo meeting comes after Zanu-PF retained Masvingo North Ward 1 seat and cantered to victory in the Mangwe Constituency by-election underlying the ruling party's dominance in local politics.

The meeting also comes after the successful meeting of Former Liberation Movements which saw them resolving to stage anti-sanctions demonstrations at United States embassies in their respective countries in solidarity with Zimbabwe for the removal of the illegal embargo.

The Politburo is also expected to discuss Chivi South legislator Cde Killer Zivhu's fate after the party received recommendations to expel him from Masvingo Province.

Cde Zivhu is also accused of initiating a process of collecting signatures from people to support his initiative for dialogue between President Mnangagwa and Mr Chamisa.
