‘New party doles out cash to residents‘
By Nyasha Nhau
A NEW political party ldeas Party of Democracy (IPD) led by a South Africa-based Herbert Chamuka has taken charity work to the communities by giving US$5 or the equivalent amount in local currency to the less privileged in different parts of the country.
Chamuka said that the exercise was not partisan.
“We have decided to join the corporate world and individuals who are doing a good thing to assist those who are less privileged during this difficult time.
“As a party we are not targeting our members only who are in all the country’s 10 provinces but as well underprivileged families.
He said this is not a time to politicise the global covid-19 pandemic, but to unite and love one another.
“We do not have much but the little that we have in our coffers as a party we are going to share with our fellow brothers and sisters within our communities.
“Jesus said love one another as l have loved you, so l am appealing to those who are fortunate to assist with the little they have so that we all see the Zimbabwe that we want as we are heading to Cannan”.
One of the beneficiaries Faith Musariri from Masvingo confirmed receiving money from IPD.
“After when l was approached by the party coordinators in Masvingo, a week later l received rtgs $225. I want to thank them for what they are doing.”
However, it was not clear how much has been donated around the country so far by the party.
IPD is set to hold its congress this year to elect its candidates for the national elections.
