Hunting Facts, Telling Truth

Chamisa Dumps CCC, Forms DAZ

Chamisa Dumps CCC, Forms DAZ
Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) National Deputy Spokesperson Gift Ostallos Siziba sent social media into a frenzy when he hinted that the Nelson Chamisa-led party is dumping the party name for a new one.
This development doesn’t come as a surprise, especially considering the recent power struggles within the party.
Self-imposed Secretary General Sengezo Tshabangu virtually owns the CCC after the High Court prevented 22 CCC legislators, recalled by him, from participating as party candidates in the by-elections last December.
In a bold move, Tshabangu recalled 14 MPs and eight Senators in October, claiming they were no longer CCC members.
Despite their appeals at both the High Court and the Supreme Court, the MPs lost their cases but managed to file nomination papers for the by-elections under CCC.
 Tshabangu, in response, successfully contested the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission’s acceptance of their candidatures.
Tshabangu’s ongoing recalls have created uncertainty about the political future of those elected as CCC candidates in the August 2023 election.
Recently, Tshabangu even went further and named an interim CCC leadership comprised of a national treasurer, chairperson, women assembly chairperson and national director of elections with some reports suggesting that he had also named Nelson Chamisa’s replacement.
Gift Ostallos Siziba Fuels Speculation Chamisa is Forming New Party
Now, Gift Ostallos Siziba sparked curiosity when he hinted that they are dumping the name CCC for a new one the Democratic Alternative in Zimbabwe (DAZ).
This move wouldn’t be unprecedented, as CCC itself emerged after the courts granted control of the MDC Alliance to Douglas Mwonzora.
Siziba shared a picture of Chamisa on X (formerly Twitter) with the caption,
“The leader of the Democratic Alternative in Zimbabwe is Advocate Nelson Chamisa.”
