Fresh Headache For Chamisa Over New Party Name

Fresh Headache For Chamisa Over New Party Name

An opposition political party calling itself the Citizens Convergence for Change (CCC) has written a letter to Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) chief elections officer Utoile Silaigwana in protest over the registration of the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) led by Nelson Chamisa by the electoral body.

In the letter, CCC secretary-general Farai Zhou claimed the Nelson Chamisa-led political outfit not only usurped its abbreviation but also its colour (yellow) as well.

Zhou advised ZEC to liaise with CCC and agree on a different abbreviation for them to use, failure of which will result in litigation against both the electoral body and the newly-formed CCC. Part of the letter by Zhou to ZEC read:

Citizens Convergence for Change (CCC)

We refer to the above and write further to your Press Statement, a copy of which is attached.

We note that there is a new political party that you have referred to as “Citizens Coalition for Change” and, in your Press Statement, you have given them the abbreviation “CCC”.

While we are still consulting our lawyers regarding the question of whether “Citizens Coalition for Change is too close to our name to cause confusion to the reasonable voter, it is beyond question that there cannot be, and you cannot accept a new political party that uses the abbreviation “CCC”.

That abbreviation, as noted to you as far back as 8 September 2021 belongs to our political party, and it is wrong for the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission to consider that it can easily parcel off to another entity.

Particularly when that entity clearly seeks to benefit from our name and colours: ours as you are aware being BLUE and YELLOW.

The time for suing ZEC will come, when you start fiddling with things to deny voters their choice, please do not invite us to start suing you now.

Kindly liaise with this political party and agree to a different abbreviation for them to use, which is not ours.

Absent confirmation that you will heed this warning, our lawyers will in fact file papers suing both ZEC and this usurper and ask for costs on the punitive scale.

Chamisa and his allies recently abandoned the MDC Alliance name and branded the party to Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) after the MDC-T led by Douglas Mwonzora claimed the MDC acronym and all its derivatives.

THIS DOES NOT SOUND SENSIBLE THAT THEY OWN THE LETTERS CCC. CHAMISA'S PARTY IS CITIZENS COALITION FOR CHANGE. THIS OTHER ONE IS CITIZENS CONVERGENCE FOR CHANGE. THESE ARE DIFFERENT NAMES.

TODAY'S POLITICIANS ARE VERY GREEDY. THEY ARE DOING ALL THIS FOR CRUMBS. IN THE PAST WE HAD ZANU NDONGA, ZANU, ANC, UANC, ZAPU AND PF ZAPU. WE HAD NO PROBLEMS OF NAMES BEING SIMILAR.

DO THESE PEOPLE REALISE THAT THEY ARE PERSECUTING VOTERS AND THERE SHALL COME A TIME WHEN THEY SHALL BURST.

The problem with Chamisa is that he’s not a fighter. He is a quitter. He quitter the name MDC Alliance without a fyt. He can also quit this and do something. You can’t jus let wht you know rightfully belongs to you go without a fight. Quitters never win and winners never quit
