The party’s interim Bulawayo provincial chairperson, Rwatirinda Mahembe, immediately declared that his party would be participating in next year’s elections.
He said their short term goals were to give people a true sense of economic empowerment, access to basic education, good living and improve the health delivery system.
“We are a political party that believes in social democracy. Our founding principles are that of grassroots empowerment. We are not against any particular party, nor do we believe in using hate speech against other parties. Our core value is that peace is the root of success and that social justice is the most effective mechanism of solving the problems being faced by the country,” said Mahembe.
He added that the current political players had largely failed the nation by failing to fully implement the Global Political Agreement. He said if elected to power they would strive to develop policies as directed by the masses.
“It’s really not about us, it’s all about the people, they will lead us and guide us in what we do,” said Mahembe.
The launch was, however, disappointing as the party failed to present its entire top leadership, claiming that they had been held up in other ‘pressing commitments’.
“At the moment I cannot reveal our interim executives, but what I can say is we are now waiting to go to congress where we will then elect the substantive leadership,” said Mahembe.Post published in: News
