Former vice-president Joice Mujuru says that she her party is not falling apart and she is not quitting.

“We are moving. Everything is by God’s plan. It is their democratic right, I am happy for them and wish them very well in their future political life,” she said of the members who have left her. Her new secretary general, Crispen Karanda, said the NPP was here to stay.

“We are going nowhere. we are still alive and very much alive,” said Karanda, who replaced Gift Nyandoro, Mujuru’s long-time aide who left the party soon after the election.

Former Zanu PF politburo member and ex-Energy minister Dzikamai Mavhaire was one of the most high- profile NPP leaders who left and joined the MDC Alliance led by Nelson Chamisa recently.
