Zapu spokesperson Iphithule Maphosa said:
…Mphoko must learn to respect president Dabengwa and always remember that he leads the party he deserted in 1976. Whatever president Dabengwa does he has the people’s mandate, unlike Mphoko who serves at the benevolence of Mugabe who unduly appointed him.
As such, Zapu is open to and is in a habit of speaking to like-minded organisations and individuals in efforts to find alternatives and solutions.
