“After a year of meeting Zimbabweans from all spheres, listening and learning their pressing challenges and their call for a new political and socio-economic alternative, I’m honoured to officially invite all to the launch of the people’s agenda manifesto by @APAZimbabwe on June 20,” Moyo posted on his Twitter page early this week.

Although Moyo has scoffed at the idea of joining opposition parties’ grand coalition to depose Zanu PF, he said he would invite all political activists of all colours and shades to his party’s manifesto launch.

“We open this invite to all democrats, members of the free press, Zimbabweans across all political divides beyond APA members who want to listen, learn, critique and stay informed in lieu of the July 30 elections. Dress, however, you like. Even in your favourite scarf or T-shirt,” the former Industry and International Trade minister said.

Moyo said the ruling Zanu PF party had no capacity to resolve the country’s worsening socio-problems, hence, the need for new political players.

“A new Zimbabwe run differently is not going to be attained by the same methods we have used before of patronage and divisiveness. Because a fish rots from the head, we have to do better,” he said.
