It is clear that Chamisa was not happy with people in certain key positions such as communications, Treasury and in the organizing department.

Chamisa has also take this opportunity to fire the leaders who have defected to the Khupe Faction.

However, the team is mostly the same except for Mahere in communication who is a very good appointment as she is young and a woman in this position for a change.
