New political party emerges


CHINHOYI Little-known Chinhoyi resident Tendai Peter Munyanduri has launched a new political party, the Progressive and Innovative Movement of Zimbabwe (PIMZ), which he claimed had the capacity to unseat Zanu PF and MDC-T in the next general elections.

Munyanduri (46) told NewsDay yesterday he had mobilised enough grassroots support and would take his campaign to urban centres.

Munyanduri, who is a former member of both Zanu PF and MDC, accused President Robert Mugabe and Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai of failing to deal with corruption and nepotism which are rife in parastatals.

Our party is an alternative to parties that have dominated the countrys politics for the past decade although proffering no solutions to challenges faced by ordinary people in the streets.

Corruption and nepotism are rampant mostly in parastatals, but nothing has been done to ensure rightful individuals occupy strategic posts to steer these quasi-government bodies to make profits, said Munyanduri.

It is only in Zimbabwe where parastatals are loss-making because the leadership of these organisations are based on political allegiance and loyalty as opposed to merit. Our party believes in meritocracy.
Munyanduri is a senior planning engineer at Zesa offices in Chinhoyi.

Although he could not be drawn to give figures, he claimed his party had a huge support base in Harare, Kwekwe, Gweru, Kadoma, Chegutu and Chinhoyi.

He said PIMZ would field candidates in all the countrys 210 parliamentary constituencies in elections Mugabe wants held this year.
