We want to assure them that their plots will fail and the party will trudge on to massive victory.

“We are here also to use the opportunity to respond to some of the spurious and unfounded allegations that are being made generally on the leadership of the party especially the one that has to do with mismanagement of funds of the party and lack of transparency in the management of the affairs of the party.


“We are a critical part of the leadership of the Labour Party being members of the National Executive Committee.

“We thank them for being true patriots and we pray the posterity will be kind to them for all the sacrifices they are making to salvage this nation at huge price they are paying.” now.”
