Former MDC-T spokesperson Linda Masarira recently formed a political party called LEAD after a fallout with her party colleagues.
Masarira was pictured wearing ZANU PF party regalia which led to her expulsion from the Thokozani Khupe-led party.
The LEAD leader says that she is now on a massive recruitment drive to grow her party across the country and beyond. She said:
To put speculations to rest for those that think LEAD is a wishful thinking of my frustration with failing revolutionary efforts on the political arena and to show the whole nation of Zimbabwe and indeed the working population that LEAD has come to stay, today I officially notified ZEC through its Bulawayo and Matabeleland office that LEAD has entered the political field.
… LEAD is a people’s party, no big names. We are giving these people who have always been elbowed out of politics by strong men. We are redefining politics and giving every other person a chance to be in leadership and fix Zimbabwe.
LEAD is focusing on organic grassroots intellectuals, not political elites who are more concerned about self-aggrandizement than serving the people of Zimbabwe.
