In a decisive move aimed at dispelling misinformation, FORUS Party has issued a resolute statement distancing itself from former spokesperson Thandazani Moyo and reaffirming its steadfast dedication to democratic ideals.

Said FORUS Party in a statement,” “Mr. Thandazani Moyo is no longer a member of FORUS Party. He resigned from his position as Spokesperson and revoked his membership in July 2023. Therefore, his views and opinions do not represent those of FORUS Party.”

The statement follows Mr. Moyo’s recent appearance on Gambakwe Media, where he made statements alleging the party’s involvement in demonstrations against the current government. FORUS Party vehemently denied these claims as baseless and without merit.

“We categorically refute, deny, and dismiss with contempt the notion that FORUS Party is involved in any alleged demonstration against a sitting government. Such claims are baseless and unfounded. FORUS Party upholds the principles of peaceful and democratic means to address issues and advocate for electoral reforms.”

Additionally, FORUS Party expressed regret over the breach of privacy concerning a confidential conversation between its President, Manyara Irene Muyenziwa, and the SADC Secretariat, which was improperly disclosed by Gambakwe Media with Mr. Moyo’s involvement.

Maintaining a cooperative relationship with the Southern African Development Community (SADC), FORUS Party clarified the nature of its engagements concerning electoral reforms within the region.

“We have engaged diplomatically with SADC on issues related to electoral reforms and irregularities. It is important to note that SADC does not have a legal basis to order and supervise fresh elections in Zimbabwe. Our engagement with SADC is focused on constructive dialogue and collaboration to promote democratic electoral standards in Southern Africa.”

The party reaffirmed its unwavering commitment to democratic values and electoral integrity in Zimbabwe, pledging continued engagement with relevant stakeholders to advance democratic norms regionally.
