Tshabangu Round Up: What We Know About the man behind CCC Recalls Drama

Harare | The story of Sengezo Tshabangu recalling CCC MP’s is currently the most trending story in Zimbabwe and almost everyone who is politically woke is talking about it.

ZiMetro was keen to learn more about the man who took the political spotlight by storm and this is what we now know.

Sengezo Tshabangu is a politician from Zimbabwe who has been the subject of controversy in Zimbabwe’s opposition political scene. Although there aren’t many biographical data about him, his recent actions and participation in CCC political activities have drawn a lot of notice.

Tshabangu has a varied political career that is shown in his involvement in a number of parties and events. Here are some significant moments from his political career.

Tshabangu had ties to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), a dissolved political organisation headed by former Finance Minister Tendai Biti, as well as the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC).

Tshabangu discredited President Emmerson Mnangagwa and placed blame on others in his divisive comments from 2018 on the state’s role in the Presidential Guard deaths on August 1, 2018. Unarmed individuals were protesting the delay in publishing the results of the presidential election when the army opened fire on them.

Sengezo Tshabangu professed to be the acting secretary general of Nelson Chamisa’s Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) in October 2023.

Tshabangu claimed to be recalling a number of CCC MPs and council members by writing letters to the Speaker of Parliament and the Minister of Local Government, claiming that they were no longer CCC members.

Internal party conflicts and legal challenges resulted from this action.

A little over forty people registered to run under the CCC’s banner without the party’s approval, leading to uncertainty in certain voting districts.

Nelson Chamisa, the party’s founder and previous president, was purportedly forced out of the CCC because to a leadership struggle that Sengezo Tshabangu was involved in.

Allegations of power personalisation, party fund misappropriation, and cooperation with opposing political parties served as the basis for the expulsion. The party experienced severe division as a result of these acts, and its future course was called into question.

Tshabangu’s actions and remarks have sparked legal challenges, CCC MP demonstrations, and rifts within Zimbabwe’s opposition political scene.

There are still disagreements and new developments, therefore the situation is unstable.
