dabengwa2.jpgIn-fighting has rocked the ZAPU movement with a member of the party claiming that he is the legitimate leader and accusing Dumiso Dabengwa of being an illegitimate president who is just power hungry.

Mr Agrippah Madlela, who says he is the legitimate president of ZAPU, accuses Mr Dumiso Dabengwa of trying to usurp the party’s constitution and creating a one man run show. 

Madlela, who says elections should be held this year without fail, told ZBC News that Dabengwa was never elected to the party’s presidency but is trying to further his own political interests.

Efforts to get comment from Mr Dabengwa were not successful as his phones were not reachable.

A number of political organisations that have mushroomed in the country have failed to make any significant impact on the country’s political landscape with infighting and power struggles contributing to the lack of vision in the parties.
