Chamisa stole US$2 million from CCC coffers: Hwende

Senior opposition CCC official and lawmaker, Charlton Hwende, who supports a group that controls the party, charged on Wednesday that leaders of a different faction supporting former leader Nelson Chamisa had embezzled party funds intended to pay election agents in the harmonized elections of the previous year.

Under the leadership of Amos Chibaya and Gift Ostallos Siziba, this faction is conducting operations and is now holding meetings while donning blue regalia and swearing loyalty to Chamisa.×280&!a&btvi=6&fsb=1&dtd=1847 They have thus far interacted with supporters of Chamisa in the provinces of Bulawayo, the Midlands, Harare, and Manicaland.×280&!b&btvi=7&fsb=1&dtd=1865 Also Read: ‘We are a thousand years behind’: Pres Mnangagwa challenges ICT minister×280&!c&btvi=8&fsb=1&dtd=1881×280&!3&btvi=2&fsb=1&dtd=126 The missing funds were yesterday confirmed by CCC Marondera Central Member of Parliament Caston Matewu who claimed he did not receive his allocation and “whoever received the money in Zimbabwe did not pass it on”.

Hwende made the allegations using his X official account while responding to former CCC legislator for Seke constituency Willard Madzimbamuto who described the so-called blue movement as “a fictitious and deceptive factional agenda”.×280&!d&btvi=10&fsb=1&dtd=5774 “The blue brigade is a fictitious and deceptive factional agenda. A classic example of abuse of the perceived proximity to power! We must be disturbed when once a great movement that filled stadiums now is celebrated in halls and homes.”×280&!e&btvi=11&fsb=1&dtd=6332 In response, Hwende accused his colleagues of driving “deception” within the opposition party that is now “full of compromised people”.×280&!f&btvi=12&fsb=1&dtd=6623×280&!4&btvi=3&fsb=1&dtd=139 “This is what is happening and a correct assessment of what is happening.
