Today’s meeting was expected to seal the fate of the party’s embattled political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere after all the party’s 10 provinces recently passed a vote of no-confidence in him.
Zanu PF secretary for administration Ignatius Chombo confirmed the cancellation, saying Mugabe had a busy schedule this week.
“Yes, the politburo has been postponed and all members are advised of the same. The President has a guest, so he has a busy schedule with the visiting King,” he said.
Mugabe is today set to leave for Victoria Falls to join the Lesotho monarch on a boat cruise in the Zambezi River.
Tomorrow, the Zanu PF leader is scheduled to officially open Tokwe-Mukosi Dam and conduct a groundbreaking ceremony for the dualisation of the Beitbridge-Masvingo-Chirundu Highway.
