By Langton Ncube|The Joice Mujuru’s National People’s Party (NPP) has failed to raise money for its election campaign material.
According to NewDay the party is unable to print T- shirts, raise money for fuel to travel to rallies and funds for other logistics, forcing members to fund themselves.
“The party has nothing and we are struggling to meet basic expenses to host meetings. Members, especially those in leadership, have been asked to fund their own transport to rallies and party meetings, which has left many frustrated,” NewsDay heard.
When contacted for a comment, NPP secretary-general, Gift Nyandoro, who doubles as acting treasurer and Mujuru’s spokesperson, denied that the party had hit hard times.
“To start with, NPP is not a profit-making organisation that declares a loss or profit balance sheet at the end of an accounting period, but is a voluntary organisation that thrives on what its membership collectively contributes,”he said.
