'Don't Take People For Granted', Magaisa Warns CCC Leaders

'Don't Take People For Granted', Magaisa Warns CCC Leaders

United Kingdom-based Zimbabwe constitutional law expert and political analyst Alex Magaisa has urged the opposition Citizens’ Coalition for Change national leadership not to take citizens for granted but communicate clearly to prevent uncertainty, confusion and panic.

This comes after CCC vice president Welshman Ncube was pictured with former MDC-T vice president Thokozani Khupe and former MDC-T organising secretary Abednico Bhebhe seemingly emerging from a meeting.

The picture has been circulating on social media platforms since Tuesday, prompting some opposition political activists to speculate that the three could be working together, having been senior members of the original MDC at the turn of the Millenium.

CCC, however, said Ncube, Khupe and Bhebhe’s meeting was a private meeting that had nothing to do with the party’s programmes.

In a Twitter thread, Magaisa, a Kent University law professor and former advisor to a Prime Minister of Zimbabwe, said CCC leaders risk can derail the movement if they lose focus and make mistakes. Pindula News publishes Magaisa’s post below:

1. The bond of trust between political elites in the cockpit and the passengers is very important. It is fragile and must be handled with care. People don’t want to be taken for granted or to have their emotions on a merry-go-round. Explain your movements.

2. True, sometimes those in the cockpit must make tough decisions as they steer the plane. But communication with the passengers remains important, lest there’s uncertainty, confusion and panic. Lack of communication or half messages lead to speculation which is equally unhelpful.

3. When you make important decisions, explain to the people what’s going on and why. People want to believe their leaders have the wisdom to make the right decisions. But don’t leave in a position where they must speculate. Communicate. Communicate. Communicate.

4. The CCC has the ball at its feet & everyone wants it. That’s why there’s a flurry of propaganda & other destabilisation efforts from the regime. But the Yellow Train is moving. The only people that can derail it are the leaders of the CCC if they lose focus & make mistakes.

5. Whatever decisions they take, they must be smart, well thought out & well-timed. An otherwise good decision made at the wrong time can have terrible consequences. But above all, don’t keep your people in the dark. Communicate with them. Show them some respect.

6. If you see your people speculating too much or asking “What’s going on here?” it suggests you’re not communicating well with them. It’s not a good habit. Keep your people onside by communicating well with them. If it’s good news they will support you. If not, hear them out.

CCC leadership have a big decision to make on Welshman Ncube. This notorious man must be summoned to a disciplinary hearing - to explain his political relationship with Khupe. At the end of the day, appropriate action has to be taken against the sellout. To me, Ncube's expulsion from the party is the only way to go. #CCC #NHM #YELLOWBUS
