Job Sikhala on Potentially Succeeding Nelson Chamisa as CCC Leader

Job Sikhala has shed light on whether he is willing to step into Nelson Chamisa’s shoes as the President of the Citizens’ Coalition for Change (CCC).

Sikhala, who recently got released from Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison after spending nearly two years behind bars, spoke out for the first time in an exclusive interview with The NewsHawks.

When asked about the possibility of succeeding Chamisa, who unexpectedly quit the CCC last week, Sikhala made it clear that he is not interested in power and that his activism is not driven by a thirst for power. While he didn’t reveal his intentions directly, he acknowledged the importance of people in politics and stated that he will listen to what the people have to say.

“I am not interested about power. My suffering and everything that i have been doing has not been motivated because of power. It is something that I represent the conscience of our people, That is where it begins and ends. Whatever will come thereafter is completely out of question. The biggest deployers of any role in politics are the people. I will listen to the people,” Sikhala said.

In a separate development, the CCC, loyal to Nelson Chamisa, has appointed seasoned politician Jameson Timba to lead an Administrative Committee following Chamisa’s resignation. The committee includes Lesley Kurazhizha, Ralph Magunje, Gideon Shoko, Prince Dubeko Sibanda, David Chimhini, Morgan Ncube Gondongwe, Susan Matsunga, Josaiah Makombe, and Maggie Chakabunga.

The Citizens’ National Assembly has also resolved to engage Chamisa and his supporters to discuss the way forward for the party and the country.

Furthermore, the CCC loyal to self-imposed Secretary General, Sengezo Tshabangu, along with the National Standing Committee, held an extraordinary meeting chaired by Welshman Ncube on Monday.

The faction’s Communication Department will hold a press conference on Wednesday, January 31, 2024, where the National Standing Committee will jointly announce the outcomes of the urgent and extraordinary meetings that took place on January 24th, 28th, and 29th, 2024.
