Former Zanu-PF member Didymus Mutasa has turned down an invitation to join the newly-formed National Patriotic Front (NPF).
In an interview with Daily News, Mutasa said NPF is a tribal party which is Robert Mugabe’s brainchild. Mutasa who formed Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF) also ruled out joining other opposition parties. Said Mutasa:
It is true that I met Mutinhiri, but I am not yet their member. I am there for the people to consult. I meet anyone from Tendai Biti to Nelson Chamisa but that does not mean I will be joining them. I think there is no big difference between the two parties — Zanu PF and the NPF. The party is tribalistic. This is a party that is looking at a particular region and not the whole country.
