CCC Leadership 'Divided' Over MDC-T Defectors

CCC Leadership 'Divided' Over MDC-T Defectors

The CCC leadership is reportedly divided on whether to accept or reject defectors from MDC-T led by Douglas Mwonzora.

Chamisa has extended the olive branch to former colleagues within MDC-T since the launch of CCC in January this year.

Reports suggest that more MDC-T members are keen on joining CCC after the Mwonzora-led party failed to win a single parliamentary seat or ward in the 26 March by-elections.

Mwonzora’s former close ally, Fungai Chiposi, recently defected to CCC, with other former MDC-T high-ranking officials willing to join CCC.

MDC-T former vice-president Thokozani Khupe has endorsed Chamisa and Abednico Bhebhe (ex-organising secretary) has already joined CCC.

However, CCC interim national chairperson Thabitha Khumalo has declared that she would not allow Khupe’s admission to the CCC, calling her a snake in the house.

In an interview with NewsDay, CCC spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere said the opposition did not discriminate against anyone and every citizen is free to join. Said Mahere:

We focus on values, actions and policies, not personalities. Chamisa said in his 2022 Agenda address that this is a year of action for change.

The guiding value is that we put the citizens first and they are at the centre of all decision-making.

The only qualification to join is that one is a citizen. The citizens will choose their leaders at the appropriate time.

Meanwhile, Khupe through her spokesperson Ntando Ndlovu, on Friday told NewsDay that she wants to join CCC as an ordinary member. Said Ndlovu:

The former Deputy Prime Minister is of the view that to defeat an authoritarian government like ZANU PF, the opposition political parties must unite and form a formidable force against ZANU PF.

As it currently stands, the only capable alternative to ZANU PF is the CCC party and, therefore, she believes that opposition political players must coalesce under CCC and rally behind Chamisa.

Alliances have caused problems before. People must join as opposed to forming alliances.

The headline is misleading. This is not division. This is healthy democratic debate. If there had been division, we would seen some people leaving, but alas no. Noone has left the Yellow Bus.

If you want to see division look at what happened to ZANU in Binga. They torched each other's houses and destroyed a Central Committee member's car. NOW THAT IS DIVISION

PROPAGANDA..THABITHA SAID KHUPE WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN "THE HOUSE" MEANING THE LEADERSHIP..CHAMISA SAID ANYONE CAN JOIN BECAUSE IT IS A CITIZENS' MOVEMENT SO ANYONE CAN JOIN BUT NOT THE LEADERSHIP..MAHERE SPEAKS AFTER THINKING.
NO DIVISION HERE...
HONESTLY I THINK KHUPE IS USEFUL BECAUSE REMEMBER SHE TOLD THE PEOPLE NOT TO VOTE FOR MWONZORA AND THEY COMPLIED.😂😂😂😂NOBODY VOTED FOR MWONZORA

NOW WE CAN BLAME THE SOCIAL MEDIA FOR SPREADING DAMAGING INFORMATION.

YOU CAN FOOL SOME PEOPLE SOMETIMES BUT YOU CAN'T FOOL ALL THE PEOPLE ALL THE TIME.

Anyone must be accepted in our party CCC but we must not give them positions, simple. Those who do not want defectors are afraid of afraid of competition when it comes to positions

Triple C should come up with a well silted Constitution, which will not allow any defector to get any top position. They should start from the lowest unit. Save at that level for at least 2 congressional term before being allowed a step up. Never be fooled by Chibhakera's Technics on chebundos, It meant to lure us into elevating ""defector spies"" . Watch out ,once beaten twice shy. Pliz be weary about khupes

Our politics is a game of defecting that draw unnecessary attention instead of focusing on issues that real matter, 2023 is around the corner politians should be dealing with voter registration campaigns and putting everything in order such that the ground is level for a free and fair election. As citizens we are now tired on disputes in every election.
We need to move forward as a nation talk economy and let the economy put food on our tables, that can only happen if we put the right people on positions that need those with people at heart. Defectors to me are people who are after jobs jus like what soccer players do, dont give them ears let them play.

I personally, I am in support of President CHAMISA. Let CCC embrace defectors where ever they come from. Politicians have no permanent homes and friends. They flip flop. Our party, CCC, will grow by admitting new members. Those who are not keep on accepting Defectors are afraid of losing their positions. That can be solved by putting in place a policy which forbids a defector to stand for a position until after a certain time frame.. VOTE CCC.
