ZAPU Rejects Chamisa's Offer To Join CCC

ZAPU Rejects Chamisa's Offer To Join CCC

ZAPU has rejected an offer by Nelson Chamisa, leader of opposition Citizensโ€™ Coalition for Change (CCC) to join the newly-formed political outfit in a bid to dislodge the ruling ZANU PF from power.

ZANU PF which has been in power since 1980 when Zimbabwe got independence from Britain is accused of running down the Southern African country.

Addressing his supporters at White City Stadium in Bulawayo last weekend, Chamisa said his party was open for coalitions with any political outfit with the objective of removing the ruling party.

He specifically mentioned ZAPU.

ZAPU however, turned down the offer saying it believes the 2018 coalition with the MDC Alliance did not yield anything for the party. Mthulisi Hanana, the ZAPU secretary-general, said:

We are not joining Chamisa.

We never said we are joining CCC.

In the party we first get consciousness with grassroots before we take such decisions.

We have never done that and Chamisa has not approached us.

So we have not made any commitment with CCC and Chamisa cannot invite us at a rally.

This has caused a rift between the leadership and grassroots.

Remember in 2018 we had an alliance with Chamisa, but Zapu got nothing out of it.

In as much as we accept that Zapu cannot be as big as CCC at the moment, we want to occupy our democratic space and we are still gaining support.

We stand for an alternative voice in the country.

ZAPU spokesperson Msongelwa Ndlovu said Chamisaโ€™s call is a confirmation that the work being undertaken by ZAPU after the elective congress which ushered in the leadership of Sibangilizwe Nkomo is bearing fruit. Nkomo is the son of the late former Vice President Joshua Nkomo.

Ndlovu reiterated that any forms of cooperation and unity of Zimbabweans against the government of President Emmerson Mnangagwa is welcome and must be encouraged by all well-meaning countrymen.

ZAPU wants another Unity Accord with ZANU PF. The CCC is on a resurgence. Chamisa does not need Zapu that much. He is not desperate & ZAPU is not that important, except for its historical legacy left by Mkwabuko Nyongolo Nkomo. Some political parties are parties in name only. Zapu betrayed the people of Matebeleland by joining Zanu Pf in the Unity Accord. Zapu leaders got Ministerial posts & high profile positions while the people of Matabeleland got Gukurahundi & underdevelopment. With these few words let me say "Ghod Bress Pumura. Old Pumura. Ghod Bress Bhuruwayo."

What do you expect from ZAPU, a party that sold liberated Zimbabwe to ZANUPF?
They are benefiting and will never truly oppose ZANUPF. Not for the right reasons but at the expense of Ndebele people. For decades Ndebeles have been at the mercy of ZANUPF and ZAPU continues to behave like a baby failing to thrive...FTT yeparty.
