2023 Elections Not Yet Done and Dusted: Chamisa

Former Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) leader Nelson Chamisa says the 2023 harmonized elections issue is not yet over because it was not done as required by international standards.

Addressing journalists after paying his respects at the Namibian Embassy in Harare following the death of Namibia’s President Hage Geingob on February 4, Chamisa there is need to address the “disjuncture and distortion” stemming from the electoral process.

“Many people still think 2023 is done and dusted, far from it, in fact it has not yet been concluded. The election in Zimbabwe was not done properly per SADC standards, per AU standards and global standards and because of that we want to make sure that we resolve the issue of elections.

“We won that election and Mr. Mnangagwa was declared the winner and that brings the disjuncture and the distortion and that distortion must be addressed. We need to fix the issue of what the people voted for. Zimbabweans voted for change and that change must happen,” said Chamisa


During his visit to the Namibian Embassy, Chamisa emphasized that his actions were not driven by partisan politics but rather by a desire to honor the legacy of President Geingob and to represent the aspirations of the Zimbabwean people.

“I am here precisely representing the people of Zimbabwe who believe in the alternative and who have supported and continue to support [me].

“You are aware that we recently held our elections, the 23 August 2023 elections. Over two million people voted. It is those voices I carry, so I don’t need a political party as I come… It’s not about politics, it’s about honouring a giant,” he said

Chamisa quit the opposition movement citing that it had been hijacked by ruling Zanu PF backed elements, any accusation that the revolutionary party has dismissed.
