CCC ‘candidate’ turns down nomination

Sindiso Mazibisa


CONFUSION continues to reign supreme in the Nelson Chamisa-led Citizens Coalition for Change’s candidate selection process, with a candidate tipped to represent the party as Member of Parliament for the Magwegwe-Lobengula constituency declining the nomination and distancing himself from the rank and file of the political outfit.

The party’s candidate nomination process has taken over a month and there is no indication when the party will have the final list of candidates amid fears that the party leadership was working on imposing candidates. Bulawayo lawyer, Mr Sindiso Mazibisa on Friday released a statement distancing himself from the party and declining any possible nomination.

“I, Sindiso Shepherd Mazibisa, would like to appreciate the people-driven process that saw a certain section of the residents of Magwegwe-Lobengula constituency acknowledging the community work I have done in the area in my individual capacity and in the capacity of community institutions I am associated with, leading them to nominating me to be a Member of Parliament nominee under the opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC). Regrettably, directly or indirectly I am not part of the CCC or any of its associated organisations or agencies. I humbly decline the nomination and distance myself from any current or future participation within the CCC organisation whether be it Member of Parliament nominee for Magwegwe-Lobengula constituency or whatever position that the members of the organisation may desire me to participate as,” said Mr Mazibisa.

Mr Mazibisa declared that he would continue serving the Magwegwe community on a personal basis and outside the parameters of the CCC as a political organisation,

“In the same vein, I would like to stress it that I am a son of Magwegwe, having been bred there. As has been my track record in community development, I remain committed fully to seeing the safest and fastest development in our community hence, I will continue implementing development projects in the aforesaid community under the Sindiso Mazibisa Family Foundation and the Southern Stars Foundation in our endeavour to achieve the ambitious goal of becoming an upper-middle income community (UMIC) by 2030.

“I, as an individual, and the above organisation acknowledge the challenges facing Magwegwe-Lobengula constituency and commit that we look forward to partnering with all nation loving, community oriented and progressive individuals under our flagship Initiative of Bulawayo First Campaign and One Bulawayo Movement to realise a better Lobengula-Magwegwe community, Matabeleland and a flourishing Zimbabwe.”
