“We are going to continue working as a team, I want to assure the
people of Eastern Province that we are not going to leave them behind and we are not going to disappoint our party members. We will make sure we drive the spirit of love in our party,” he said.
Zimba said party leader Edith Nawakwi was ready to contest the forthcoming elections.
“We have already started preparing for next year’s elections, in fact, I will tell you one thing, our party president is so ready to stand as presidential candidate during the upcoming 2021 presidential elections,” he said.
