"Prospective CCC MPs Or Councillors Aren't Doing Their Work" - Chin'ono

Freelance journalist Hopewell Chin’ono has challenged opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) prospective MPs and councillors to do more to mobilise the electorate ahead of the 2023 elections. 

Chin’ono bemoaned the relaxation of the opposition party amid reports that since the last election, only 109 405 have registered to vote despite the fact that about 2 million youths turned 18 between 2018 and 2022. He said on Twitter: 

The truth is that @CCCZimbabwe prospective MPs and Councilors are doing very little to motivate the youths. Serious politicians reach the youths via Tik-Tok, but non of our lot is there. They don’t care because they are targeting urban areas where they are guaranteed to win.

They will win these urban seats and wards but with small margins affecting the Presidential vote. But for most of them they don’t care because parliament is a job, and not service. If @nelsonchamisa doesn’t do something drastic, he will lose because of his team’s failure!

@CCCZimbabwe should be a citizen movement which throws away the “…we were there when it started…” nonsense which has crept into CCC from the old MDC. We are not fighting for useless candidates to replace a group of useless ZANUPF MPs & councilors. Zimbabwe needs REAL CHANGE

We are not interested in photographs of prospective MPs and Councilors in communities, we want to see the numbers of registered voters going up. @HHichilema didn’t post pictures at all, we saw the registered voters going up and we knew that it meant change was coming to Zed! 

Any prospective or current MP or Councilor who doesn’t want to hear this truth is not only USELESS, but as bad as ZANUPF. Citizens should not babysit old people and be afraid to call them out! We are fighting for a better Zimbabwe & not to help people to the feeding trough!

While CCC targets 6 million votes and ZANU PF is targeting 5 million, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) reported that just over 5.8 million Zimbabweans had registered to vote as of 10 June 2022, an increase from 5.6 million in April.

Hopewell Chin'ono would make a good CCC Official. He is more hardworking than most of the interim CCC leaders. But to be honest, how can the CCC have prospective candidates when it doesn't even have a prospective constitution & even prospective structures? How are the prospective candidates going to be selected? The candidates will be selected by who? Using what criteria or what rules? Currently candidates are selected by Chamisa through his decree based on do I know you, do I like you?. The reason why CCC has inactive & incompetent MPs is - you just have to be friends with Chamisa to get imposed as a candidate. You just put Chamisa's face on your poster & you win. You dont have to work or to campaign at all. The same lazy & incompetent people are the ones refusing to have a constitution & new structures. They are the ones misadvising Chamisa that he will be infiltrated, when its only fear of new people & new things. They just want to preserve their careers & their jobs, so they block new people by calling them infiltrators & CIO's.

U nailed it Hopewell. We will vote for u & in the New Republic we will vote u out. This time we will not tolerate lazy, corrupt and indecent behavior remniscent of the Zanu Pf thugs. Any traits that are akin to Zanuism will not be accepted. Ende mukafunga kuti hamubve seZanu tokubvisayi. In fact u will serve that is if u perform only 5 yrs after that we will need new faces

Do not forget Biti is not supposed to take money to develop e community wc he represents.It is up to yu to understand that there is this animal called sabotage #zanu gvt. The reason bz most opposition legislatures are advocating for devolution. The money of tax payers is taken by this rotten gvt to sponsor shameless trips and functions

Haiwawooo even vechidiki vacho are to blame...Neither CCC nor ZEC is to be blamed. Vechidiki vazhinji know they are supposed to go and register to vote but havasi kuenda. A lot of Hopewell's very followers are foreign based and do not vote at all. Ngaaite check iye ka kuti maFB fans ake mazhinji aripi.

ZANUPF itori bho if people don't go to register. Vanhu tisu problem especially young people.

I wish CCC could win but we are headed for a mighty disappointment. Even pasina kana rigging kkkkk

All you need to know is that prospective youth voters are not convinced about the need to register and vote so they are keepin away.

While I agree with freelance journalist Hopewell Chin'ono that prospective MPs and Councillors must work hard to make sure that youths register as voters, I disagree with @Abc who disparage Advocate Tendai Biti and Chibaya who he says they have done nothing in the last 20 years they have been Members of Parliament.

Members of Parliament do not work in their constituencies only, but work in Parliament too during debates. Just listen how lively Honorable Advocate Biti has made our Parliament. My thanks go to all CCC Members of Parliament for debating lively in the August house.

Let me go back to freelance journalist Hopewell Chin'ono's advice that prospective MPs and Councillors must work extra mile to be sure most youths register to vote so that we can change ZANU PF status quo. ZANU PF must go. We can only send ZANU PF to the cleaners if we vote massively at the Harmonised Elections in 2023.




Yours sincerely

CCC cult secret society haina kurongeka. Hopewell ari pabasa uyo, he is an asset of the CIA, what he is telling you is coming straight from the US State Department, put your house in order or else we will cease all funding.

Whose Party is this🤗🤔 🤔 4 weeks ago

The pool of prospective MPs and Councillors comes from the structures. Long serving are no longer wanted so why should they bother themselves with voter registrations.
New prospective voters are on their own.

Does the CCC party itself know who the prospective MPs and Councillors are?
Based on what criteria?

Leaders in any party shouldn't fight for positions if they have same agenda.

Zimbabwe can never be the same again coz squabble for positions is a sign for no Nation at heart, in real life one should rejoice and restore when a member gets a party position. not to form another party hayibooh bomkhaya ngokwani 😂
