The nauseating and misleading media reports that there is a party calling itself the ‘Zanu-PF Original’ is an insult to the values and ethos of our liberation struggle which ushered in our freedom and independence in 1980.Our sovereignty did not come on a silver platter.

SK’s remarks coincided with the launch of Saviour Kasukuwere‘s campaign code-named #TysonWabantu
