Zimbabwe: Another political party launched, promises to end poverty and corruption
As the 2023 elections approach, a new political party has been launched, which has pledged to revive the country’s struggling economy.
The Freedom of Rights Under Sovereign (FORUS) party was launched Thursday in Harare and is led by Manyara Irene Muyenziwa.
Speaking to the media after the launch, Muyenziwa said she would never join the Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD) to appease her critics who believe she formed the political party to get a vehicle.
Last month, President Emmerson Mnangagwa donated more than a dozen vehicles to political leaders who are part of his POLAD project.
Critics accused Mnangagwa of abusing government resources at a time when the state failed to equip ailing hospitals with ambulances.
“We are an independent party, we are not going to join POLAD and what we are trying to do is seek further reforms on how best to approach negotiations or current issues,” Muyenziwa said. .
The new political leader says she is based overseas but has not disclosed where. She is also involved in running various unnamed business ventures and in humanitarian work.
“So we’re a new party and we’re trying to come up with new resolutions, new ideas, new ways of looking at things.
âSo as a new party we are not going to go into the old negotiations of everything that is going on, we are trying to find and seek new reforms as a new party,â she said.
âWe’re trying to emancipate ourselves, among ourselves. We never thought we could get to this point where a black man indirectly enslaves another black man and that’s what FORUS is for.
“We are going to bring the proper real democracy that will empower all Zimbabweans so that they can reach for the stars so that they can understand that it is doable.
“Our goal is to see a free and open society where there is a balance on basic fundamental human rights where there is a guarantee that no one will be enslaved by poverty, corruption or violence,” she said. declared.
