Madhuku’s NCA restructures


THE Lovemore Madhuku-led National Constitutional Assembly (NCA) has restructured its national leadership as the opposition party seeks to consolidate and expand its membership ahead of its inaugural congress sometime next year.


NCA deputy spokesperson Anastancia Moyo yesterday confirmed the changes which included establishing the office of national administrator and several secretaries for departments like youths, women affairs, economic affairs, party ideology, elections, legal affairs and local governance, among others.

“At the weekend meeting, Madhuku was retained as the interim chairman, Maddock Chivasa is the interim national administrator and I was appointed the deputy spokesperson,” Moyo said.

Other portfolio holders were Amos Phiri (deputy national administrator), Terrence Maoneke (youth secretary), Shamiso Nyathi Mhlekwa (women’s affairs), Grant Tabvurei (economic affairs), Getrude Kumire (party ideology), Takura Gadzira (elections), Ephraim Ndlovu (legal affairs) and Shorai Domingo (secretary for local governance).

Munjodzi Mutandiri is the interim secretary for international affairs.

Moyo added that the party was now concentrating on building its other lower structures.

“We have now started the process of building provincial, district and ward structures across the country as a full complement to handle the process is now in place,” she added.

The NCA transformed itself from a Constitution lobby group into a fully-fledged political party in September last year.

Since then, it has participated and lost muin nicipal by-elections across the country.

Meanwhile, the NCA said in the meantime it remained outside the processes of coalition of opposition parties — Coalition of Democrats (Code) — as it invests its energies in building its own structures.

“We are still building our structures and at the conclusion of the process, the party leadership will meet and decide whether to join the coalition or not,” Moyo said.

Code is an independent institution that brings together all the opposition parties excluding the MDC-T.

Currently, the negotiations include the Welshman Ncube-led MDC, Simba Makoni’s Mavambo/Kusile/Dawn and Dumiso Dabengwa’s Zapu.
