Zimbabwe People First (ZimFirst) Party
ZIMFirst is a democratic non-violent Zimbabwean Party that embraces all Citizens of Zimbabwe. It does not discriminate along race, tribal or gender lines. ZIMFIRST stands for Zimbabwe First, which means the wishes of the people come first.
ZIMFIRST was formulated in response to current toxic political situation in Zimbabwe borne as a result of rampant corruption, lack of rule of law, financial meltdown, and lack of basic human rights and needs. ZIMFIRST is inclusive of the old for their wisdom, the young for their vision and combined a true new vision for Zimbabwe.
‘Democracy implies that man must take responsibility for choosing their rulers and representatives and for the maintence of his own “rights” against the possible and probable encroachments of the Government which he has sanctioned to act for him in public matters (Ezra Pound 1993)
Zimfest is here to bring back power to the people and to hold all representatives accountable to the people who elected them and serve them accordingly. Guided by ZIMFIRST’S Constitution Zimbabwe’s future will be changed by strong citizens elected by the people to drive the changes needed to turn the fortunes of the country and ensure a better future for future generations.
