The Citizens Coalition for Change leader, Nelson Chamisa has given up his leadership post for the opposition party which he formed last year to challenge Zanu PF on the 2023 elections amid strong internal fights between himself and the self-imposed Interim Secretary General Sengezo Tshabangu.
The infighting, which resulted in the massive recalls of Members of Parliament and Councillors created divisions which may have contributed to Chamisa’s decision of quitting. The development also comes after hints emerged that he may form a new political party. In a statement released today, Chamisa informed his supporters that he nolonger has anything to do with CCC from today onwards.
“Fellow Citizens, This is to officially, and under my hand, inform you, that, with immediate effect, I no longer have anything to do with CCC.
“My focus remains fully on Zimbabwe, asserting your victory, honouring the citizens mandate and God’s calling to provide leadership.
“There are fresh things we need to do. Let’s all work together for total freedom, true change and wholistic transformation for our beloved country. Giving up or giving in is not an option. Nothing comes without tenacity and resilience.
“Fellow citizens, you will be kept posted on the next steps. Thank you all for the support and continued prayers as we get ready for the NEW. Let us embrace the opportunities that lie ahead,” said Chamisa.
