CCC Condemns Latest Arrests Of Party Members

Opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) has condemned ‘Zanu PF’s abuse of state institutions’ following the arrest of two Harare councillors Herbert Gomba (Ward 27) and Lovemore Makuwerere (25) yesterday.

Gomba who was later released without charge was arrested by Southerton Police at a residents’ meeting where was scheduled to unveil new community boreholes as well as hear the concerns and feedback of residents while Makuwerere was arrested in Highfields and charged with obstruction.

In an interview with 263chat, CCC national spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere said Zanu PF is now resorting to rogue tactics against the opposition outfit ahead of 2023 general elections.

“We condemn Zanu PF’s abuse of state institutions and continued weaponization of the law to block our meetings and activities. This is clear evidence that ZANU PF has lost popular support and is resorting to rogue tactics to try and remain standing.

“The citizens will leave no stone unturned to ensure we vote in ethical, competent leaders in 2023. Zimbabweans want and deserve a new Govt led by Adv. Nelson Chamisa to build a New Great Zimbabwe where there is dignity, prosperity and freedom for all,” Mahere said

Meanwhile, Mahere has dismissed as fake a WhatsApp message circulating on social media purporting to disown incarcerated lawmaker Job Sikhala.

“A fake WhatsApp message purporting to have been authored by me is circulating. Please note that this is Zanu PF propaganda in overdrive yet again. Disregard it. No amount of fake news and disinformation will stop political change whose time has come,” said Mahere

CCC deputy national spokesperson Gift Ostallos Siziba added “The season of fake news is upon us. You will see them generating a lot of fake WhatsApp chats and all sorts of propaganda. Keep the focus.”
