ZAPU is a genuine socio-political alternative to the constituency issues and Zimbabwean politics.

The other contestants are Ellah Zisani and Parlington Pikelele (UANC), Kasema Maxwell and Phillip Ndengu (both independent) Offard Machuwe (Zanu PF), Rosemary Nyamayedenga (Freezim Congress), Vincent Tsvangirai MDC Alliance and Edwin Million of LEAD.
