Newly formed political party, People’s Party aimed at stopping human rights abuses has appointed exiled former foreign affairs minister, Walter Mzembi as it’s interim president.
Mzembi will be deputised by ex education deputy minister, Godfrey Gandawa who skipped the country in 2018.
Lloyd Msipa based in UK will be the secretary general, while the rest of the party’s executive members will be announced at a later date.
In an email addressed to the Westminster Foundation dated 5 January 2020, Gandawa said the People’s party hoped to end the country’s economic meltdown and human rights violations.
“We are a political party that believes Zimbabwe belongs to all who live in it.
The mission of the People’s Party is to establish for the first time in our history, a fair and just society which will enable the people of Zimbabwe to unleash their talents and ingenuity so that their potential can be fully realised.
We further believe that we work together with you in assisting the people of Zimbabwe to liberate themselves, stop human rights abuses, eradicate poverty and enhance economic emancipation.
We trust this is in order and hope to engage with you shortly to spell out our way forward,” reads part of email.
