Sengezo Tshabangu is a Zimbabwean politician and a member of the Citizens' Coalition for Change (CCC). In October 2023, Tshabangu declared himself CCC Interim Secretary General and successfully recalled 15 Members of Parliament and 17 Councillors.
Presidential Guard Shootings
In 2018, Tshabangu made controversial remarks about the state's involvement in the 1 August 2018 Presidential Guard killings and exonerated President [[Emmerson Mnangagwa], stating that there were others responsible. The army opened fire on unarmed civilians who were protesting against ZEC's delay in releasing the presidential election results.
Tshabangu criticized Nelson Chamisa for imposing his preferred candidates in Bulawayo when Zanu PF sued the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) due to late filing by CCC candidates before the 23-24 August 2023 elections.
In 2016, Tshabangu was involved in an accident.
CCC Secretary General Claim and MP Recall
On the same day, Tshabangu wrote a notification to the Speaker of Parliament advocate Jacob Mudenda and Minister of Local Government and Public Works Winston Chitando to recall some Citizens Coalition for Change MPs and Councillors. 
On 9 October, the Speaker of Parliament, Jacob Mudenda, then notified the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission about 15 vacant seats in the legislative body. The announcement indicates that Jacob Mudenda disregarded CCC leader Nelson Chamisa's plea to not act on Tshabangu’s instruction. 
On 10 October, Sengezo Tshabangu then announced the expulsion of Nelson Chamisa from the CCC. He was expelled from CCC for personalising the party among other charges, with immediate effect. He stated Welshman Ncube and Tendai Biti are the acting party presidents until an Extraordinary Congress is held. 
On 4 November the High Court issued a judgment dismissing the application filed by 14 CCC MPs seeking to be reinstated as MPs. High Court Judge Munamato Mutevedzi ruled that the recalled lawmakers had failed to furnish evidence such as the party constitution or any document that could substantiate the claim that Tshabangu could not have held the position of interim secretary-general.
Following the court case win, Tshabangu claimed that CCC MPs were calling him begging him not to recall them from parliament.
Forgery Allegations/Double Candidates
Tshabangu is alleged to have signed letters that produced CCC double candidates for the 23-24 August 2023 elections, elections. About forty individuals registered to contest under the CCC banner without the party's authority. The CCC claimed it was a Zanu PF strategy to split its votes.
