Newly formed Zimbabwe Communist Party has called for a National Dialogue to avert the current economic crisis saying political endeavors have failed.
In an interview with 263Chat, Nqabutho Mabhena, the Party’s General Secretary said the party is a Marxist-Leninist political party whose vision is to build socialist Zimbabwe.
“Ours is a struggle against our enemy’s dictatorship, capitalism, imperialism and the black bourgeois which continues to loot our resources.
“As we approach the 2018 elections, we are of the view that the upcoming elections will not resolve the economic, social and political challenges we face as a country.
“The immediate challenge faced by the working class and the peasants in Zimbabwe is lack of political freedom and failure to access money from the banks, said Mabhena.
He added that his party is there to provide economic empowerment, democracy, free and quality education.
“It cannot be correct that the people spend hours in the bank queuing for money which they cannot have access to.
“People need economic empowerment, democracy, free and quality education, access to housing, access to clean water particularly in Harare where the residents have gone for years without decent drinking water from their taps,” said Mabhena.
He added that the Zimbabwe Communist Party will engage progressive civil society, churches, political parties, trade unions, students, women’s organizations, rural organizations, residents associations and every progressive Zimbabweans to support the call for the Nation Dialogue.
