In 1964 Sithole was elected first president of ZANU but lost the party presidency due to incarceration only to be released in 1975. It is also believed that Sithole was deposed because he preferred halting the struggle and opted for negotiations. He went on to form his own party which had a military wing known as Madzakutsaku.
