United Parties to elect Muzorewa successor


United Parties (UP), formerly under the leadership of the late United Methodist Church Bishop Abel Muzorewa, will elect a new leader at the party’s elective congress in Harare next month.
The party will also revert to its original name African National Congress (ANC) following amendments to its constitution and manifesto.
Muzorewa died early this year and the party’s secretary general Nesbert Mutengezanwa has been leading the party on an interim basis.
Bishop Muzorewa was the prime minister of the short-lived Zimbabwe-Rhodesia in 1979.
Mutengezanwa said in a recent interview that the congress would come up with a strong leadership structure.
UP he said, had a role to play in the country’s politics because inclusive government had failed to deal with issues affecting the people.
“All our members are free to take part in the election process,” Mutengezanwa said.
He said there was need for member states within the Southern African Development Community to ensure that the country completed the ongoing constitution-making process successfully to pave way for fresh elections.
