On its website, the party says ZIMFirst is a democratic non-violent Zimbabwean party that embraces all citizens of Zimbabwe. The party says it does not discriminate along race, tribal or gender lines.

“ZIMFIRST was formulated in response to current toxic political situation in Zimbabwe borne as a result of rampant corruption, lack of rule of law, financial meltdown, and lack of basic human rights and needs.

“ZIMFIRST is inclusive of the old for their wisdom, the young for their vision and combined a true new vision for Zimbabwe. ZIMFIRST is not driven by personalities, the army or arrogant strong men but by citizens who want the best for everyone to enjoy with equality of rights and privileges!!!”
