Tshabangu Appoints Self To Senate

CCC’s Interim Secretary General, Mr. Sengezo Tshabangu, is set to join Parliament as a Senator, following his party’s nomination for vacant party seats in both the Senate and the National Assembly.

The party’s nominees will fill CCC seats in the National Assembly designated for the women’s and youth quotas, as well as party list seats in the Senate. The vacancies emerged after Mr. Tshabangu wrote to the Speaker of the National Assembly and the Senate president, recalling the legislators.

Elected National Assembly legislators and local authority councillors who were recalled prompted by-elections, where Zanu PF secured several seats previously held by CCC. However, for those elected under party lists, CCC simply needs to submit the replacement’s name to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, bypassing the need for an election. Individuals wishing to object have 14 days to do so in writing.

For Bulawayo, CCC has nominated Lilian Mlilo, Kucaca Ivumile Phulu, Linda Sibanda, and Collet Ndlovu for the Senate, effectively replacing the majority of the CCC Bulawayo contingent. Maxwell Mdhluri fills the single Manicaland vacancy, and Sam Chapfudza represents Masvingo province.

In the Bulawayo City Council, Mercy Furanayi, Daisy Velile Mpofu, Irene Moyo, and Siboniso Moyo were nominated for the vacant women’s quota seats, while Mrs. Melody Manondo was nominated for Epworth Local Board.
