Jonathan Moyo Says CCC Should Be Barred From Contesting Elections [Full Thread]

Jonathan Moyo Says CCC Should Be Barred From Contesting Elections [Full Thread]

Exiled former ZANU PF Politburo member Jonathan Moyo says Zimbabwe should enact a law that makes it mandatory for all political parties to be registered to prevent the formation of secret societies that could undermine national security.

In a Twitter thread, Moyo queried why the Nelson Chamisa-led CCC does not have structures and a constitution and accused the party of glorifying Ian Smith and Cecil John Rhodes. Moyo wrote:

1/16 The saga of a “structureless” & constitutionless #CCC has put a spotlight on the legal status of political parties in Zim. While the Constitution in s3 declares Zim as a ‘multi-party democratic system’, it does not define the nature, functions & rights of political parties!

2/16 In the Bill of Rights the Constitution of Zimbabwe, under s67 dealing with political rights, does not distinguish between “a political party” and “an organisation”. Effectively, this means a political party is an organisation. It follows that an organisation is a structure!

3/16 Apropos s67 of the Constitution, the Electoral Act defines a political party as “any political organisation”. Since an organisation is a structure, this means that a political party is not a particular structure; but any structure; whose type must be given or made known!

4/16 Notably, the Political Parties (Finance) Act defines a political party as “an association of persons the primary objective of which is to secure the election of one or more of its members to a local authority or Parliament”. This means that a political party is a structure!

5/16 Given s67 of the Constitution, as read with the definitions of a political party in the Electoral Act & Political Parties (Finance) Act, it’s clear that a political party is a structure; what’s not there, is the nature, functions, rights and obligations of political parties!

6/16 The fact that Zim law does not provide for the nature, functions, rights and obligations of political parties is a dangerous lacuna in the country’s legislative dispensation. Due to the lacuna, “any organisation”; including a secret society can setup as a political party!

7/16 A country, especially in the developing world, in which secret societies, such as the Triple K (Ku Klux Klan) or the Freemasons, can mushroom unchecked as political parties, is prone to predictable destabilisation & disorder. That is why political parties must be registered!

8/16 As disclosed in the link to the article attached herewith, it is not surprising that, to check against political destabilisation by secret societies, registration of political parties is the norm in countries like the US, UK, Germany & across Africa!…

9/16 For a perspective, it is notable that registration of political parties is mandatory in all the @SADC_News countries neighbouring Zimbabwe: South Africa, Mozambique, Malawi and Zambia. No political party in these countries can contest in any election if it is not registered!

10/16 Instructively, Botswana; the oldest continuous democracy in Africa, does not register a political party which is an “affiliate of a foreign organisation” or which does not “provide for membership determination” or is “detrimental to the peace, welfare and order of society”!

11/16 Two facts standout: (a) By not making the registration of political parties mandatory, Zim is out of step with democratic practice in states like the US, UK and Germany, let alone its neighbours. (b) Registration of political parties is not done by electoral commissions!

12/16 It is common cause that the absolute and inescapable need for Zimbabwe to align itself with the globally well-established democratic and constitutional practice of registering political parties has been occasioned by #CCC‘s refusal to be transparent about its structures!

13/16 The refusal by #CCC to be transparent about its structures has been compounded not only by the fact that the party does not have a constitution; but also by the strange reason for the refusal, that the party wants to protect itself from infiltration by ZanuPF or the state!

14/16 The consequence of #CCC‘s refusal to be transparent about its structures is that the party has become deviant; effectively operating as a secret society, and employing political delinquency, such as the glorification of Ian Smith by its supporters, as a political strategy!

15/16 Since #CCC is “structureless” and constitutionless its leaders, who ironically are a structure, are using silence as a strategy to get its members to support unilateral and illegal Western sanctions, demonise land reform and revere Ian Smith and, by extension, Cecil Rhodes!

16/16 Registration of political parties in Zim is long overdue. No secret society should masquerade as a political party or contest any election; no political party should be registered if its leaders or members denigrate the liberation struggle or violate s3 of the Constitution!

Lawyers have a professional body that can strike one off its register if they dont follow the agreed code of conduct, soccer has a governing body so does cricket and other sports, doctors, nurses, accountants even the media all have regulating authorities or bodies.

Our politics also needs a regulating authority which can deregister or punish members for misbehaving.

Again @Tsvangirai,,,, well said there, if you all say @Bob was a dictator who ran this country as his own private family not even a private company, then what can you expect from someone who remains mum on things of such great importance? his silence simply PROVES he wants to do all things by himself, things not laid down in any governance structure such that no one will ever say apa marasika mkuru
This then translates to Pure Dictatorship where even the rights to comment zvamuri kuita ipapa becomes a DIRE crime

In 2018 Chamisa ignored advise from other cadres yekti he should go for congress wch was constitutional , and he refused sighting time as a factor. The consequences of refusing to do tht costed him and let to the downfall of MDC. Now we have a situation again where he is being advised to form structures and have his own constitution but it seems he never learns and want to continue with his dictatorial tendencies. Shame to all CCC supporters who jus support for the sake of supporting. Shame on you

Well said. Those supporting constitutionlessness and structurelessness are simply doing it without thinking.
Running a country is based on written down laws for the said country, it's not a random process. The reason why Zimbabwe is a mess is due to lawlessness in zanupf. If people are going to elect a lawless party to replace another lawless party then that's extreme madness.

The change people should be demanding is from lawlessness to law abiding.
Chamisa has not shown any understanding of this hence he is no different from Mugabe, Idhi and the whole zanupf team who make laws to serve their personal interests not those of the nation.

Zimbabwe politics needs a regulatory authority that registers participants and deregisters them if they don't abide by the code of conduct.
Right thinking citizens should be demanding that and not praise lawlessness

I have today striped off Jonathan Moyo his educationally earned title of Professor and substituted it with Blabbermouth Jonathan Moyo. I will now not address him as Muzvinafundo. CCC political party did not refuse to register. It is our law which does not require political parties to register. Some of Blabbermouth Jonathan Moyo's recommendations are already being dealt with by ZEC and our Parliament. Jonathan Moyo is singing for his super now. He has been asked to help his former party to help it secure victory at the Harmonised Elections in 2023 in return for free passage and stay in Zimbabwe. Blabbermouth Moyo is wanted in Zimbabwe for misuse of ZIMDEF funds which he corruptly used to buy bicycles which he distributed to ZANU PF cadres in his then Tsholotsho constituency. Furthermore, Blabbermouth Jonathan Moyo has a stone to grind with CCC political party for refusing him space to train its polling agents for Harmonised Elections in 2023. Blabbermouth Jonathan Moyo had intended to infiltrate CCC political party at this stage, But "AINGE ANYANGIRA RAONA."

You trying to convince us that intestines that were found wrapped in a plastic were not that of the slain Moreblessing but of a drunken Zanu Pf supporter. You are trying very hard to placate Zanu apparatchiks to waive your crimes & elevate you to the Politburo. You feeling lonely and homesick and are aware that Zanu are do **** that they will rehire you before the 2023 referendum. You expending your energy to outdo Chris Mutsvangwa. The unfortunate part is that ED unlike Bob fears u and does not trust you. Hanzi chozotipandikura chikapa Nyika Kuma Brutish (sic) British.
