I had joined the party because of its tall leadership, pro-people ideology and the political space but the leadership failed to deliver and didn’t care for the ideology and the political space I deserved. My workers are not satisfied with the treatment I was given by the party and when my workers are not satisfied, what can I do without them. I had no option but to quit. I will decide future course in consultation with my workers.”
