Moyo admitted last month that the former ruling party was battling with factions. “There is no provision in the party’s constitution for people to run separate entities. Those who belong to factions are way out of line and should leave the party. Faction leaders should also be disciplined,” he said.
He also warned individuals who have a tendency of imposing candidates on the electorate, saying such practices had cost the party parliamentary seats in the previous elections and would continue to alienate voters if left to continue unabated.
Moyo added that the people should be left to choose their own leaders without interference from influential party leaders, in line with the party’s founding principles. He also took a swipe at some senior party members whom he said were using money to sway views in the party, and said such corrupt senior leaders would be “decisively” dealt with.
