This victory rally allows us to take stock of where we stand and it helps to give direction to the party. There is nothing amiss about this because it is not a rally where we are using public funds. This is a rally that allows us to see whether our membership is growing or not. It’s more like asking for a church to grow without people meeting, that is very impossible.
He further stated that the rally will cement their party’s stance that Mnangagwa is an illegitimate president and should not be recognised.
