CCC speaks out on Chamisa colon cancer diagnosis





HARARE – Citizens’ Coalition for Change (CCC) spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere has commented on the news that the party’s leader Nelson Chamisa was diagnosed with colon cancer.

A news article that has been shared on WhatsApp alleges that Chamisa was diagnosed with colon cancer. The article goes on to state that the diagnosis was revealed after he sent a prayer request to an Apostolic Faith Mission (AFM) church group.

The Zimbabwe Mail produces the news article in question in its original state:

‘I greet you all in the name of Jesus Christ….Today my Dr announced to me that tests conducted on me tested positive to colon cancer….I know this challenging journey will be trying times that needs your prayers….l believe in the healing power of our Lord Jesus Christ By his grace I will be healed.’

Two culprits could be responsible for this, you know them
Colon cancer has claimed the lives of Zimbabwean politicians. MDC founding leader Morgan Tsvangirai succumbed to colon cancer in February 2018. While, activist Patson Dzamara died of colon cancer, just as well-wishers had raised money to get him into surgery.
