Self-imposed Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) interim secretary general Sengezo Tshabangu has written to the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs requesting for the disbursement of the political party funding due to the opposition party under the Political Parties Finance Act.
In a letter dated 06 November 2023, Tshabangu also provided the Ministry with the bank details, as he seeks to take full control of the Nelson Chamisa-led party. He wrote:
I am writing in terms of section 3(1) as read with section 3(3) of the Political Parties (Finance) Act (Chapter 2:11) to request the statutory allocation and disbursement of the funding that is due to the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) political party, which participated in the 2023 harmonised general election, in which it garnered sufficient seats to qualify for the funds.
Accordingly, we kindly request your good offices to process and disburse the allocation that is due to our party in terms of the Act…
We trust the foregoing is in order, and we stand ready to provide any further particulars that you may require.
