Impostor Sengezo Tshabangu and his Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) rebels have recalled 60 more councillors across Zimbabwe, bringing the total number of recalled councillors this week to 69.
This move is a clear indication of the internal disagreements within the CCC, which is now being destroyed by Tshabangu’s recalls.
The recalls are plunging Zimbabwe into senseless by-elections that will cost the country millions of dollars at a time when public services have totally collapsed.
The recalls are also being used by the Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANUPF) to tighten its grip on national political power.
According to senior journalist Blessed Mhlanga, a new round of parliamentary recalls is happening today. This comes after the CCC parliamentary caucus had agreed to establish dialogue with the rebels on Tuesday, but that attempt has been collapsed and scuppered by these new recalls.
The CCC is the main opposition party in Zimbabwe, and the recalls are causing a lot of concern among the citizens.
The CCC has been in turmoil since the death of its founder, Morgan Tsvangirai, in 2018. The party has been struggling to find a new leader, and this has led to internal divisions.
The CCC has accused Tshabangu of being a ZANUPF agent, but he has denied the allegations. Tshabangu has said that he is trying to force the CCC to return to constitutionalism and accountability. He has also denied that he is trying to take over the party.
The CCC has called on the international community to intervene and help resolve the crisis. The party has also called on the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission to stop the by-elections until the matter is resolved.
The situation in Zimbabwe is tense, and the recalls are causing a lot of uncertainty. The international community is closely monitoring the situation, and there are fears that the country could slide into chaos if the situation is not resolved soon.
