National People’s Party: Joice Mujuru Changes Party Name

After the political melodrama that saw the disintegration of the recently launched political party, Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF) led by  Zanu-PF reject, Joice Mujuru, the former vice president has re-branded her movement under the  National People’s Party (NPP) name. 

The move follows contestations regarding ownership of the ZimPF name after she fired seven senior members from the party on allegations of spying for Zanu-PF.
Joice Mujuru has Changed her Party Name 

Mujuru announced that her party’s name has changed from Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF) to National People’s Party (NPP). The name is popular with similar parties existing in South Africa and India.

Her latest creation excludes the seven, who included Didymus Mutasa and Rugare Gumbo, who hit back by firing Mujuru and claiming ownership of the party name.

Another party using a similar name, Zimbabwe First Party (ZimFirst), also known as Zimbabwe People First Party is a political party in Zimbabwe which was founded on 10 April 2015 by its current President Maxwell Zeb Shumba. - Sources
