CCC: We Don't Have Money For An Elective Congress

CCC: We Don't Have Money For An Elective Congress

CCC interim secretary-general, Chalton Hwende said that the opposition party cannot hold an elective congress before 2023 harmonised elections because it doesn’t have the funds for the event.

This comes barely a week after CCC interim deputy spokesperson, Gift Siziba claimed they will not hold a congress because they feared infiltration by ZANU PF and State security agents.

However, Hwende said CCC doesn’t have the huge sums of money needed to hold a congress as well as for election campaigns. Said Hwende:

The two biggest cost centres in a political party are: 1. Congress 2. General Elections.

There is no sane party that holds both events in the same year because to have a congress for CCC you need US$2 million and an election, a minimum of US$150 million. Politics is a very expensive game.

We are less than 12 months before an election, and the three critical priority areas are 1. Voter registration 2 Candidates selection and polling agents training 3. Fundraising.

Former ZANU PF politburo member Jonathan Moyo mocked the opposition party over its decision to not hold a congress. He tweeted:

(Before By-Elections) THEM: We are a new party with no constitution and no ideology. We have no officials but one; all other positions are vacant!

(After By-Elections) THEM: We have no vacancies, no congress before the 2023 polls. We want to win power!

PUBLIC EYE: Suit yourselves.

It is my sincere hope that the CCC will solves these concerns soon because they are ligitimate. How are CCC candidates going to be selected when there is no Constitution & no leadership structures? How will the processes & procedures be fair if there is no guiding document, ie; a Constitution? Is this the rule of law we preach & demand of others? Me thinks, without a constitution to insulate the CCC's internal processes from external influences, there will be chaos, since any interest party can take their grievences to court. So far, noone has the constitutional mandate or power to stop or control sinister people from taking up positions. There are no guidelines yet & anyone can declare themselves a member of CCC. Khupe just declared herself a member without submitting a membership application form & without her membership being approved. So far, it's open for all. There are no legal controls deriving from a constitution & this opens up the CCC to infiltration & court battles. Also, Hwende is publicising his incompetence. It's the SG's duty to fundraise & do party administration. If Hwende cannot urge CCC to fund themselves & hold a Convention / Congress, then he is not the right person for that post. In the past, during Tsvangirai's tenure. MDCT members would use their own money to come to Congress.

Muzvinafundo Jonso, please learn not to force food down someone's throat because if he is choked, he is highly likely to bite you. I urge Jonso to go back to the Old People's Home and report back that CCC has refused to hold an elective Congress.

Isayi Cheri Gudo we will vote CCC 2023. Any congress b4 the elections will be iniflitrated by Zanu spooks to cause mayhem. Doug and his Polad cohorts will all try to penetrate to create massive confusion. Ivavo varipo ngavatungamire. Mari yacho hatina + hatidi. Please tell George Chilamba the presidential spokesperson of Malawian descent that we will not fall for your shenanigans
