Upfumi Kuvadiki a youth organization which is well known for triggering street marches and demonstrations in a bid to seek clarity on the transaction between Easy Park and the City of Harare last year, has cleared rumors alleging that the association has recently been involved in bitter power struggles saying that it was a misunderstanding which has since been resolved.
Addressing a press conference held at Zimbabwe Youth Council Head Office yesterday, the association’s spokesperson Privilege Gwiba said “inevitably where there is a passionate desire to pursue noble causes, difference in approach arise which at times becomes the source of disturbances that threaten the effectiveness of any movement”.
The Youth Association last week wrote to stakeholders notifying them of the expulsion of its Secretary for Information, Alson Darikayi. In a letter written by the Association’s Secretary General Tatenda Maroodza the association cited ‘misconduct and misrepresentation’ as reasons for Darikayi dismissal. Gwiba however insisted that their leadership structure had not changed thereby nullifying their earlier communication.
Gwiba told the media that Upfumi Kuvadiki was still intact and would continue to operate at the front line of empowerment drive for the benefit of current and future generations. He noted that the press reports surrounding the leadership of the association should be considered as unfortunate and part of the natural development of the association.
The Director of the Zimbabwe Youth Council who was chairing the press conference reaffirmed the support of Zimbabwe Youth Council to Ufpumi Kuvadiki and any other youth organization that may face challenges during the course of their operations. In his words the Director said “It is in our mandate as the Youth Council to regulate and support youth associations and we are committed to ensuring that all youth associations’ achieve their objectives and that youth activities are done in a manner which promotes youth empowerment and participation.
