CCC Says Zambian, Malawian Elections Informed Its Engagement With SADC And AU

CCC Says Zambian, Malawian Elections Informed Its Engagement With SADC And AU

Opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) says it has changed its approach to engaging SADC and the African Union (AU) after lessons from previous elections in Zimbabwe and neighbouring Zambia and Malawi.

The party led by Nelson Chamisa, a former Minister of ICT during the Government of National Unity (GNU) is hopeful that the regional blocs will finally exercise their influence on Zimbabwe to bring electoral reforms.

Fadzayi Mahere, the party’s national spokesperson told reporters at a press conference held on Thursday last week that the party was in the process of preparing a dossier of government’s electoral breaches to take to the regional blocs to prevent electoral fraud. 

Zimbabwe heads for its harmonised elections in 2023 with the opposition increasingly apprehensive over the government’s continued failure or neglect to make requisite poll reforms to create a level playing field. Fadzayi Mahere told reporters:

We have sharpened our approach since the 2018 elections, we took very important lessons even with these by-elections.

This has informed our engagement with the international community, particularly regional bodies around electoral processes that are going to take place in Zimbabwe.

You will note that there has been a shift of approach by the region when it comes to elections; we saw the work they did in Zambia, Malawi and the work they continue to do in other jurisdictions.

So we are ensuring we have a dossier of information to give to them so that they are prepared and know from the get-go what is taking place in Zimbabwe.

Chamisa still claims that he was robbed of victory in 2018 when president Emmerson Mnangagwa was declared the winner of the presidential elections. He said the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC), in connivance with the ruling ZANU PF, manipulated electoral results in favour of Mnangagwa.

The matter was taken to court where Chamisa failed to prove his allegations. 

Among other allegations, the ruling party is accused of using ghost voters, vote-buying, voter intimidation and ballot-box stuffing.

Chamisa's popularity on social media platforms and the economic problems this nation is facing are not enough factors to determine results of the electorate!
Mark my words, next year this time we will be having ED in the presidium.

@Nailer, sure he MAY be in the Presidium yeZANU, not Presidency of Zimbabwe. There's a world of a difference in the two terms.

Ndati MAY, (in the case of ZANU Presidium) because like Julius Caesar, he needs to look around his inner circle to see who is holding the dagger.

In as much as people like change truth being told we are very much accustomed to ZANU everyone unconsciously support ZANU even Chamisa kkkkkk Zimbabwe for ZANU ...

Tongue twisters @ Captain.

1. Is it Zimbabwe for ZANU or
ZANU for Zimbabwe?
2. To suggest that Chamisa subconsciously supports ZANU makes you a suitable candidate for Ngomahuru.
3. The only change that ZANU has seen is martial (1980 by threatening the masses with a continuation of the war; 2008 - Long Sleeve/Short Sleeve after losing to Tsvangirai and of course November 2017).

how do you know that Chamisa is not a thief

CCC Political Party must have learned from their mistakes which included:

Firstly, failing to post polling agents at all polling stations. This allowed any political party with a chance to staff ballot boxes.

Secondly, CCC Political Party posted double candidates in more than 15 wards and Constituencies. This came out during the CONCOURT hearing. An agonizing example is that one of Harare South Constituency where CCC posted Shadreck Mashayamombe and another against ZANU PF's Togarepi Mnangagwa. CCC Mashayamombe got 26000 ++++ and co-candidate got 6000++++ against ZANU PF Togarepi Mnangangwa's 28000 ++++. Mnangagwa was declared the winner.

Thirdly, CCC Political Party must feed and pay well their polling agents to avoid polling agents "buying" because of hunger. A good example is in Nyanga where Supa Mandiwanzira of ZANU PF fed everyone in his constituency out mercy as other polling agents had nothing to eat. Supa Ma diwanzira went

ZANU lost to Edgar Tekere's ZUM priorto 2008. Ask Davison Gomo. It is Tekere who saved us from a One-Party-State
