THE opposition party formed by expelled Zimbabwe deputy president, Joice Mujuru, has launched a book it says would be used in its campaign to unseat President Robert Mugabe in the 2018 elections.

Prominent Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF) party member and former military colonel, Kudzai Mbudzi, has penned the book titled, "The National Grievances."

Mbudzi said the book chronicles Mugabe's alleged gross governance and leadership failure from ascending to power in 1980 to date.

"Mugabe has authored for himself his own political manifesto of misrule over the past 36 years. Therefore, this book is equally positioned to be the manifesto of all democratic movements in Zimbabwe towards the 2018 elections," said Mbudzi said.

About 4 million copies of the book will be distributed nationwide for free, especially at ZimPF presidential campaign rallies.

"We are tired about saying 'Mugabe must go' without doing adequate and detailed in-depth analysis of why he should go. The mantra is a tired one, hence this book," said Mbudzi.

Mugabe (92) has ruled Zimbabwe with an iron fist since independence.

He faces a stiff test in 2018 with age taking its toll and his popularity waning.

He has defied such odds in the past but critics accuse him of rigging elections.
