"Imagine CCC Big Guns Contesting In Rural Areas" - Ruhanya

Pedzisai Ruhanya, a Zimbabwean academic, journalist, and political commentator has reckoned the opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) will likely dislodge the ruling ZANU PF from power if its bigwigs contest in rural areas where they come from.

Many politicians have a “dual citizenship” as they stay in urban areas where they are eligible to contest for political office and they also have rural homes, where they originally come and also can contest for political office.

The opposition has been winning in urban areas while rural areas have to date remained ZANU PF strongholds. Political analysts say winning the rural vote is crucial in the opposition’s quest to remove ZANU PF from power. Ruhanya is one of them. He said this Sunday:

If CCC big guns contest in rural areas, I bet you CCC will narrow the margins of Zanu PF ‘wins’ in 2023 and possibly flow the regime in these rural places. Just imagine @JobSikhala1 in Gutu. What do u think will happen!!!

Others agreed with Ruhanya. T. Mutasa @wokwaMutasa said:

Yes, this would be a new and more impactful strategy Sikhala should go for Masvingo Senatorship campaigning the whole province. Have pointed this out previously. Same for others, instead of focusing on one constituency senior leadership should go provincial or national

Eddie Seo @Emperor_Gweru replied to Ruhanya’s post:

Big guns will lose in rural with a narrow margin which will work in CCC’s favour. If they can understand that sacrifice Zimbabwe will be won for a change.

Rex Mhene @earthmover2017 argues that fear of loss is a huge demotivation for them. Said Rex Mhene:

He will lose, and he knows he will lose, that alone is an incentive not to contest in his village area and stick to a safe seat in urban.

Some said there was no need for them to be contesting in rural areas where they don’t stay. 

This is consistent with observations made in the past that some politicians are seasonal, they only visit their rural constituencies when they want to mobilise the electorate for votes.

They are contesting in townships where they don't live. How many of the rural MPs live in rural areas anyway?
They won't contest there because they know they will lose.

those CCC cowards are afraid of facing a real challenge they would rather settle for the so called 'safe' seats. They leant a lesson from Tsvangirai who who got clobbered in Buhera

It's dangerous to be hopeful ☺️. When expectations cannot be fulfilled, they will know pain; A pain so primal, emanating from the depths of the soul. Please vanhu ve CCC, Forget about winning
