Political landscape shaken as Nelson Chamisa’s Blue Movement pulls a shocker


Political landscape shaken as Chamisa’s Blue Movement uses CCC structures to mobilise support

Nelson Chamisa’s Blue Movement, an initiative led by the opposition leader, is utilizing the structures of the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) to gather support. However, political analysts have expressed concerns that this new organization may face similar challenges as its predecessor.

Chamisa decided to distance himself from the CCC after accusing Zanu PF of infiltrating the party. The self-imposed interim secretary-general of the CCC, Sengezo Tshabangu, had removed several CCC legislators from Parliament, prompting Chamisa’s departure.

Former CCC legislators, Amos Chibaya and Ostallos Siziba, have been conducting country-wide tours to update grassroots supporters about Chamisa’s upcoming political movement, which will be identified by the colour blue. However, some senior opposition figures are reportedly unhappy with Chibaya and Siziba’s actions, as they were not informed or involved in these provincial meetings.

Recent developments have revealed that Chibaya and Siziba are utilizing the CCC structures to mobilize support for the new movement, despite Chamisa’s disengagement from the organization. This became apparent when the duo sought permission to hold a rally at Mkoba Golf Course in Gweru, but faced obstacles from the police due to insufficient information about the venue. Interestingly, the CCC was listed as an applicant in the rally application.

Professor Stephen Chan, a World Politics expert at the University of London, emphasized the importance of Chamisa’s organization to ensure success in his future endeavours.

The incident in Gweru led to the rally being banned by the police, citing concerns over potential violence. As the situation unfolds, it remains crucial for Chamisa to navigate these challenges and chart a clear and effective path forward in his pursuit of political objectives.
