Mnangagwa, ZANU PF Running Scared, Says Chamisa1 year ago
CCC leader Nelson Chamisa on Saturday, 7 May, said his party will not allow ZANU PF to hijack their congress.
This comes after ZANU PF-linked political commentators have criticised the delays by the CCC to hold an elective congress.
Addressing hundreds of CCC supporters at a rally in Gwanda yesterday, Chamisa said:
ZANU PF stole all that we had including our name, red colour, MPs and our offices, but we said no let them take everything and we started afresh.
We have not launched our party, but just introduced it and ZANU PF is afraid and we have put them on notice. CCC is the new kid on the block.

ZANU PF is plotting against us in terms of the congress, but we are ahead of them.
ZANU PF represents your suffering while CCC represents your happiness.
ZANU PF represents the chefs and CCC represents ordinary citizens.
CCC was formed early this year after Douglas Mwonzora’s MDC-T took over MDC Alliance assets and its elected representatives following a controversial court ruling.
The 44-year-old former Cabinet Minister insinuated that ZANU PF plans to interfere with the CCC’s elective congress. He said:
When choosing candidates for elections we will want those coming from citizens, not from the top.
A lot of people ask why are you not having a congress, but we say stop that a bit.
Once bitten twice shy. We know ZANU PF is plotting against us, but we will ambush them and expose them.
From now on we will be doing an underground movement.
We want to be visible everywhere in rural areas, farms, mines and so forth.
The liberation struggle was a citizen project but ZANU PF hijacked it.
Chamisa implored CCC supporters to register to vote in numbers to ensure a big win in the 2023 elections. Said Chamisa:
Let’s go and register to vote and have bumper votes.
The only way to stop baboons from stealing in the fields is by having a bumper harvest.
ZANU PF is shaking, Mnangagwa is afraid.
