Chamisa says ZEC must secure March 26 by-elections

By Staff Reporter

CITIZENS Coalition Change (CCC)  leader Nelson Chamisa has implored the Zimbabwe Elections Commission (ZEC) to secure the forthcoming March 26 by-elections through enacting mechanisms  which reflect the will of the people.

He made the remarks in a keynote address to thousands of party supporters at a rally in Mutare last weekend.

 “When Zimbabweans went to war the main fight was for all citizens to attain one man/woman one vote.

“If you take a closer look, these days your vote can get you into hot soup. As it is, it seems people who fought for that vote died for nothing.

“We want to make sure that as we head towards the by-elections your vote must count. Some are asking if we will make it in the elections due to ZEC; ZEC is supposed to be a national institution,” he said

 The trailblazing opposition leader said past lessons had left lasting impressions prompting CCC to petition the regional organ of SADC.

“ I wrote to SADC officials and some leaders from other countries including the United Nations,” he said.

 “I informed them that we will not contest in 2023 elections without UN and conditions set up to assure the announcement of the real election winner.”

“The election can only be conducted whilst we (CCC) are contesting. It takes two to tangle, we are the real owners of this country. Without CCC the nation will not be fully represented,” he said.

“Right now my brother Mnangagwa is moving with half loaded bus because the other half belongs to CCC.”
