Dr Dabengwa nominated as Zapu presidential candidate

On the 4th May 2013, ZAPU Europe province nominated and endorsed Dr Dumiso Dabengwa as its presidential candidate for the forthcoming elections, which are likely to be held in September or October this year. If all ZAPU's 14 provinces nominate Dr Dabengwa to be the party's presidential candidate, then Dr Dabengwa is set to have a bruising contest with the likes of Prof Welshman Ncube, Mr Morgan Tsvangirayi and Mr Robert Mugabe.




ZAPU says it is a unique party, with unique and radical policies, for example, it says its president does not automatically become its candidate. ZAPU is the only party whose policy clearly demarcates presidential powers, for instance, if ZAPU's president wins the presidential elections, he/she automatically ceases to be the president of the party.

Some have argued that this policy is dangerous as it leaves the President vulnerable and a lame duck, hung up for the picking by opposition, but what they fail to understand is that ZAPU does not do knee-jerk reactions, it is a party which has a history of ground breaking and earth shattering policies, which stand the test of time. This is why ZAPU is the only party with undisputed nation-building credentials, even its nemesis can attest to that.

ZAPU introduced the concept of devolution of power and all other parties, bar ZANU PF and Jonathan Moyo, jumped up and down and attempted to adopt it, but without being successful.

Amongst the prospective presidential candidates, Dr Dumiso Dabengwa is by far the most loveable, the most versatile and innovative leader, whose leadership style is empowering. With Dabengwa as the President, the country's misfortunes will turn into fortunes. ZAPU and Dr Dabengwa do not believe in big leaders anymore, but strongly believe in strong and big institutions. Many people still do not understand this, they view this as political naivety, but the truth is that they are playing catching up game, ZAPU plans years ahead, while other parties just plan around elections, they do not have long term vision for the country.

ZAPU's economic policy, which will be released very soon, will show what a serious political party does. There would be no senseless grandstanding provisions aimed at hoodwinking the populace, but a pure and mature economic advancement policy which when adopted will ensure that the country is recovered and put on a sustainable development path, which will ensure the prosperity of the country as a whole.

ZAPU will unapologetically banish nepotism and corruption. Those who are corrupt and survive on the sweat of the innocent hardworking people will find themselves outnumbered and outfoxed.
