CCC Leadership Lacks The Courage Of Morgan Tsvangirai - Mzembi

Zimbabwe’s former minister of Tourism and Hospitality, Walter Mzembi has said the opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) has a good chance of winning the 2023 polls, but its leadership lacks the courage of the late opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai.

The self-exiled former ZANU PF member told NewsDay in an interview with the Alpha Media Holdings editor-in-chief, Wisdom Mdzungairi, that ZANU PF will not surrender power easily.

He added that the ruling party had “solid structures” to mount an effective campaign ahead of the polls.

Mzembi also said that having the top executive constituted by lawyers only can be a weakness for the CCC. He said:

Can they (CCC) win? Yes, they can… The ground for that to happen is as fertile as it was in 2008, but they probably lack the courage of Tsvangirai. He was not a lawyer and, therefore, his calculation of risk was different.

If you want to win a battle emphatically, you change battleground like the eagle when it is preying on a snake, it picks it up, spins it in the air where it has no balance. The current team love the courts, but then again they are lawyers, yet they forget who is in charge of the courts.

The Nelson Chamisa-led CCC contested for the first in the March 26 by-elections after rebranding from MDC Alliance in January and won 19 of the 28 parliamentary seats that were up for grabs. But Zanu PF retained its rural constituencies.
