The party does not have money and most of its activities were being funded through Gutu’s law firm especially travels for party meetings
The party was also reportedly having internal disputes and membership was dropping according to another source that spoke to the publication and said:
Membership has also been dropping and the party has lost massive support since joining Polad in the face of economic hardships that have hit the people. Khupe hardly speaks in public and has not shown any leadership qualities except following Zanu PF. So with Gutu gone, the party will likely go under.
Khupe said she was shocked and saddened by Gutu’s resignation. Gutu said he was resigning on personal and private grounds but Hopewell Chi’ono said Zanu PF was indirectly behind Gutu’s resignation.
