"Even the policy conference we are paying for it...we also kept our members too low...we thought we dealing with our own members who are poor...had we started to increase for those who could afford we would be in the better space," Zulu said.

"We do get money from Parliament but that is not enough for any political party we need to be innovative and creative about where we make money to make sure that staff are properly paid and all other operations are properly paid for."
