All is set for the Zanu-PF Youth League conference that will start today with the arrival of delegates from various parts of the country ahead of the official opening by President Mugabe tomorrow, while accreditation of delegates was ongoing at the party headquarters.
This came as Zanu-PF held elections in some provinces yesterday for the Women’s League to fill slots for Central Committee members, which saw some party heavyweights in the organ falling by the way side.
The Women’s League will hold its conference next week.

Mashonaland Central and Harare provincial executives said they were still finalising the results and would make them known today.
Masvingo and the Midlands held their district elections yesterday and will hold their elections today.
The Youth League conference got a boost yesterday when the Affirmative Action Group donated bottled water, soft drinks and stationery worth US$5 000.
