BIKITA - Losing Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF) candidate in the Bikita West by-election held in February, Kudakwashe Gopo has announced his return to Zanu PF which he left with the fall of the Gamatox faction which saw former Vice President Joyce Mujuru being sacked from the ruling party for allegedly plotting to topple President Robert Mugabe from power.
Speaking to TellZim News, Gopo said he had re-arranged his thoughts and discovered that all other political parties have no direction.
"I went to ZimPF through immaturity. I thought seeking greener pastures would land me a top post without sweating. Being in the opposition has however taught me that Zanu PF is the only organised party that has passion for young people like me.
"I tried to mobilise support for ZimPF during the Bikita West by-election but instead of supporting me, they fought against me. In Zanu PF, you won't face resistance from your own comrades at such critical times," Gopo said.
Gopo waxed lyrical about the Zanu PF, promising that he was done shifting political sides as he now wanted to go back and work for the ruling party.
"I have been to MDC, I went to Zanu PF and later on joined ZimPF. All these moves have taught me that it's cold out there and I am done moving. I am now sure of my position. I will be done pledging back my support to Zanu PF by the end of this month. I really want to re-join the struggle and move with the flock that has direction," said Gopo.
Meanwhile, inside sources that have been working with Gopo said he had rejoined Zanu PF merely to benefit from campaign gains.
"Gopo is just a mere chancer who is eying campaign deals that arise in Zanu PF during election time. He is just after benefits that come without sweat but he is destroying his career," said a party insider who asked that he not be named.politics
