Peoples Democratic Party secretary-general Gorden Moyo said the situation in the country has now reached boiling point.

"As you meet for your 8th congress you must know that out its getting dark. Those who are in power have been affected by fists. Their president is totally useless and if you look at him it is like you are doing body viewing," Moyo said in a solidarity speech at the Zapu congress.

"Chinamasa (Patrick, Finance Minister) went across seas to look for money and came empty handed with only his beard."

He called on all opposition parties to join hands in order to defeat Zanu-PF in the 2018 elections.

"Zanu-PF is fighting and its leader is just concerned about his wife. Let us bury our differences and work together we will defeat the enemy. We just currently ruled by corpses," Moyo said.

Mavambo/Kusile leader Simba Makoni said Zanu-PF has failed to provide food to the starving masses.

"There was enough food in this country but now people are starving. They took the farms and they are now growing grass," Makoni said.

He said leadership does not mean using force on one's people.

"If you look at the leaders we have today and ask them when they last sat under a tree and talked to our parents they do not even know. That is why they do not know how people are suffering," Makoni said.
