Agrippa Mutambara who is the leader of Zinbabwe People First (ZimPF) said that he was still in charge despite being dismissed by the party’s secretary-general Kudakwashe Bhasikiti. Mutambara said that Bhasikiti had already been dismissed when he fired him for failing to properly consult on the MDC Alliance.
I have not had any leadership challenge. There is a rogue element, an impostor in the name of Bhasikiti, who is doing his own things. I have 100% support except Bhasikiti alone and a few of his followers. I am firmly in charge, stronger than before.
We have no problem at the MDC Alliance. We are in touch with them and we are not going to entertain people like Bhasikiti. He will no longer feature as representing ZimPF. We removed him and the alliance is aware of that. He is not going to participate on our behalf and we have replaced him.
When he purported that he fired me, we had already suspended him with a unanimous decision of the steering committee, in fact, when he panicked and went to the media, he had already been stood down.
