Mkwananzi Explains Why Recalled Members Filed Nomination Papers As CCC Candidates

Citizens’ Coalition for Change (CCC) spokesperson Promise Mkwananzi has defended the move by the party’s candidates to contest by-elections set for 03 February under the CCC banner.

Barely two days before the 09 December by-elections, CCC activist Sengezo Tshabangu, who claims to be the party’s interim secretary general, approached the High Court to bar the party’s MPs whom he recalled in October, from contesting as CCC candidates. The High Court ruled in his favour.

However, posting on X on Monday, Mkwananzi insisted that the High Court ruling has no effect because the party appealed against the judgement. Said Mkwananzi:

We are pleased to announce that our candidates have successfully filed to contest in the upcoming by-elections.

There is no doubt that we will romp to victory once again. This is because we already won those seats which the regime seeks to reverse using unorthodox means.
