HARARE – Zimbabwe People First (ZPF) has set end of next month as the date
for its inaugural congress where a substantive executive is going to be
This was revealed by ZPF interim president Agrippa Mutambara during his
meet the structures tour here over the weekend.
“We are still working on the date but I think by the end of August we
should be having a substantive leadership in place, in other words we are
working towards holding our congress not later than end of August,”
Mutambara told the Daily News.
He said since his party’s acrimonious split with former erstwhile leader
now National People’s Party president Joice Mujuru, they have since
decided to revisit their structures.
“This is my first time that I am being introduced to Bulawayo as the
interim president of ZPF, for the past few weeks I have been going around
provinces being introduced, this is an on-going process,” he said.
“After our separation with Mai Mujuru who formed her own party we
continued for some time without a leader, so it was the steering
committee, the highest body of our party that was leading and we did not
have a leader.
“We then went through a process of selecting a leader which led to me
being selected as the interim president; it became necessary that I had to
be introduced to the structures as their new president.”
