Nyagomo Officially Joins Zanu PF after MDC Alliance Rejected Her.
23 May 2021

By A Correspondent | Progressive Democrats Of Zimbabwe leader Barbara Nyagomo has joined ZANU PF, Emmerson Mnangagwa’s party has announced.

The chicken-logo’d party welcomed Nyagomo in a short video celebration circulated at the weekend.
Nyagomo is a UK based nursing professional who traveled to Zimbabwe before the 2018 polls to launch her blue flame party and became one of the opposition entities during the elections.

Briefly speaking to ZimEye, Nyagomo said Nelson Chamisa’s MDC Alliance rejected her when she was told to go join the party at branch level. She also said the developments are a result of ZANU PF making better overtures.

She said: “Zanu Pf approached me and they said they will call me, somebody from the top is supposed to phone me to explain to me, maybe it’s coming from their information department. Since Dabengwa died I have not been politically active. “People have been trying to recruit me in their political parties. I was told vakuru chaivo vachakufonera. No one has contacted me so far, I was only sent the video.” She then went on to say MDC Alliance had told her to go join the party at branch level Mash West. “I did a lot for MDC Alliance including mediating with Dumiso Dabengwa before the 2018 elections but after the polls, they told me to go join the MDC A at branch level in Mash West.

“Any party that tells me to back to branch level, I will refuse,” she told ZimEye.
