Chamisa in an attempt to incite civil unrest

Staff Reporter

Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) leader Nelson Chamisa is in a desperate bid to incite the country’s workforce to fight for the removal of President Emerson Mnangagwa from power ahead of this year’s plebiscite.

In his message at Workers Day commemorations organised by the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU), in Dzivarasekwa, Chamisa said, “Workers are the wheels of change, Workers deserve a new and great Zimbabwe, Workers stand up and participate in the change that you so deserve.”

In an interview, political analyst, Paul Masiziba said that basing on the recent political turmoil in CCC, Chamisa was now banking on workers to save his waning political fortunes by inciting them to revolt against the Government.

Masiziba also highlighted that Chamisa was intentionally trying to hijack the workers’ programme that resonates well with the clarion call of President Mnangagwa of leaving no one and no place behind.

“The workers programme will benefit the workforce in Zimbabwe including even those that are from the informal sector. This means improved working conditions and average wages for everyone in the workforce.” Masiziba said.

Chamisa is well known for playing politics of desperation, as highlighted by how he has imposed candidates during his party’s candidate nomination process, leaving same in turmoil and the party’s members at loggerheads.

“ Chamisa is sensing his impeding loss ahead of the plebiscite, hence all these desperate moves to influence workers and lure them into doing his dirty work despite the clear evidence that the Second Republic is working tirelessly to improve the living and working conditions of the country’s workforce.” Masiziba said

Masiziba added that the workforce of Zimbabwe would not be influenced and join in Chamisa’s political desperate antics meant to subdue President Mnangagwa ahead of the upcoming harmonized general elections.

‘President Mnangagwa and his administration have clearly made the welfare of workers its top priority and are working to ensure better relations between the private sector and the Government. This is in recognition of the unique role that workers play in implementing Government policies. I don’t think the workers can be incited by anyone to revolt against the Government,” said Masiziba.
