The opposition party started its elective congress yesterday with delegates from Matabeleland provinces, Bulawayo and part of Midlands having arrived by mid-morning and going through registration and accreditation processes at the party offices.
Zapu acting president Isaac Mabuka told Southern Eye that those accredited will be allowed to attend the congress at Bulawayo Amphitheatre. About 2 000 delegates are expected to attend.
