    - This year's Zanu PF 16th annual National People's Conference will be held in the province at a venue yet to be confirmed.
    This comes after the province hosted President Mugabe's birthday bash in February this year which was attended by thousands of people who came from all the country's 10 political provinces.
    "We have received a letter from the administration department confirming that we have been selected by the Politiburo to host this year's annual people's conference in December. We are going to put up committees to start the preparations as we are already behind schedule," said Amanasi Nhenjana provincial acting chairman.
    Last year the conference was held in the premier resort town of Victoria Falls where the Women's League made a demand to have one of the Vice Presidents as a woman and the national secretary for the wing Grace Mugabe was tipped to take over.
    It is believed that their demands for gender balance in the top four leadership of the party is still on the agenda and reports say their target is Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa believed to be angling to succeed President Mugabe in a fierce succession battle pitting G40 against Team Lacoste.
    Masvingo hosts Zanu PF conference after having last done so in 2003.
    Although there are reports that the conference maybe held at Mutendi's Mbungo Estates, Senator Clemence Makwarimba who is a central committee member said the preferred venue is the Great Zimbabwe Monuments.
    "The most ideal venue is the Great Zimbabwe Monuments where we held the successful birthday celebrations in February at the beginning of the year," said Makwarimba.
