Tinashe Sambiri|Former Zanu PF stalwart Walter Mzembi has revealed how Zanu PF uses State institutions to maintain a firm grip on power.
According to Mzembi, Zanu PF is a “complex” political party.
“Zanu PF is a complex political party whose existence is not voluntary but permanent from cell to Presidency.
Its Members are somehow
” salaried ” empowered ” &
” full-time ” & do politics for a living, volunteers will struggle to take it out,” said Mzembi.
Former Zimbabwe Mirror editor, Innocent Chofamba- Sithole, believes Zanu PF cannot in any way transform the country’s economy.
“ZanuPF has struggled since the late 90s, even before opposition formation, or any form of sanctions were introduced, to turn round the economy.
They’ve mobilised massive resources & State institutions to retain power at every election.
But nothing ever changes.
The post-nationalist political movement in Zimbabwe has always coalesced around a charismatic leader who’s clearly in tune with popular aspirations. Morgan Tsvangirai was that man in the previous phase of this struggle. In this generation, it’s @nelsonchamisa, without question.”
