MASVINGO – Citizen Coalition for Change (CCC) president Nelson Chamisa will address a rally at Mucheke Stadium in Masvingo on Sunday to celebrate the party’s victory on March 26, 2022 by-elections.
CCC entered its first ever plebiscite as a new party and trounced the ruling party in all four Masvingo Urban by-elections but lost in Chiredzi, Chivi and Mwenezi.
Chamisa confirmed the rally in an interview with The Mirror this morning.
“I will be in Masvingo on Sunday for Citizen thank you rallies. As you know, we were in Gwanda and other places where we won. In Masvingo, our four councillors won on March 26 by-election. So we will be thanking the people of Masvingo for voting for our councillors,” said Chamisa.
The four councillors are Rocky Kamuzonda (Ward 3), Aleck Tabe (Ward 4), Daniel Mberikunashe (Ward 5) and Richard Musekiwa (Ward 7).
