ALL is not well in the National People’s Party (NPP) led by the Dr Joice Mujuru as failure to restructure, defections and general apathy by the electorate in Masvingo is reported to be the order of the day.

The Herald understands that the party has vainly tried to regroup to come up with formidable structures ahead of the 2023 harmonised elections.

NPP spokesperson Mr Jefres Chitando, who defected from the MDC led by Mr Nelson Chamisa, yesterday said he was optimistic that the party would formulate sound structures.
“We are putting up structures that will successfully challenge Zanu-PF in the forthcoming elections.

“Some people are viewing the NPP as a smaller party or just a political outfit which will never rule this country. No! We are determined to take over power from Zanu-PF,” said Mr Chitando in an interview.
He denied that some of his party supporters had since defected to MDC-Alliance, while others no longer participated at meetings.

“Elements within Zanu-PF are lying about our party. We are still strong. There are no defections affecting the party,” he said.State media
