Plot to recall Chamisa’s MPs and councillors: CCC exposes Zanu PF’s desperate tactics


The Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) has strongly refuted reports of recalls made by an individual named Sengezo Tshabangu, dismissing him as an impostor who has never been affiliated with the opposition party. In recent developments, Tshabangu, a former member of MDC-T and PDP, purportedly initiated the recall of 15 CCC MPs and 17 councillors.

According to a letter addressed to the Speaker of Parliament, Jacob Mudenda, Tshabangu claimed that Nicola Watson, Pashor Sibanda, Ereck Gono, and others were no longer members of the CCC. It is also alleged that Tshabangu signed letters resulting in the nomination of double candidates from the CCC in Bulawayo during the Nomination Court process.

In response to these claims, the CCC’s spokesperson, Promise Mkwananzi, issued a statement posted on X, declaring that the letters circulating on social media, supposedly written by the impostor, should be disregarded. Mkwananzi emphasized that the CCC party has not recalled any of its recently elected representatives and has no intention to do so. Additionally, he clarified that Sengezo Tshabangu is not and has never been a member or official of the CCC, having been associated with the MDCT and PDP parties in the past. Tshabangu is known for his involvement in fielding fraudulent CCC double candidates in Bulawayo and Matabeleland North. The CCC expressed its determination to take action against Tshabangu and all individuals associated with him.

The CCC further accused the ruling party, Zanu PF, of attempting to infiltrate their ranks. They viewed this alleged behaviour as a response to Zanu PF’s defeat in the 2023 elections and their rejection by the people of Zimbabwe. The CCC asserted that Zanu PF’s actions were a feeble attempt to counter the exercise of the CCC’s freedom of association, as demonstrated by their absence from the official opening of parliament on October 3, 2023.

The CCC urged their representatives in local authorities and parliament to continue fulfilling their responsibilities as mandated by the electorate in the recently concluded elections. The party remains steadfast in its commitment to serving the people despite the challenges posed by this situation.
