Former Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) leader Nelson Chamisa has initiated a mobilization campaign for his forthcoming political movement.
Chamisa’s loyalists, including former legislators Amos Chibaya and Gift Ostallos Siziba, addressed supporters in Mutare during the inaugural mobilization program for the new movement.
Notable opposition figures present at the meeting included former lawmakers Regai Tsunga and David Chimhini. However, Chikanga legislator Lynette Karenyi-Kore was notably absent.

Chamisa’s decision to step down from the CCC last month stemmed from concerns over alleged infiltration by Zanu PF within the party. Interim secretary-general Sengezo Tshabangu’s removal of several CCC legislators from Parliament fueled Chamisa’s departure.
Siziba emphasized that the CCC was now history to Chamisa and his supporters, signaling a shift towards a new political vision under President Chamisa’s leadership.
The pro-Chamisa faction aims to host similar gatherings across all provinces, with Masvingo slated as the next destination.
According to Siziba, the grassroots support for Chamisa remains steadfast, even as rival factions attempt to entice him back to the CCC.
Chamisa, in an interview with The Standard, hinted at the formation of a distinct political movement, characterizing it as an uncharted territory yet to be explored.
