Citizens Coalition for Change leader Nelson Chamisa has written to the speaker of parliament Jacob Mudenda urging him to ignore a letter from Sengezo Tshabangu who claims to be CCC’s interim Secretary General.
This comes after Tshabangu wrote to the Speaker of Parliament and Local Governance Minister recalling 15 MPs and 17 councillors saying they had ceased to be members of the CCC.
In a statement, Chamisa said any correspondence regarding any CCC MP is to be directed to his office and any communication or notification regarding mps shall come from his office.
“Pursuant to the notification of the names of elected Members of Parliament through the Government Gazette General Notice 1380D of 2023 and General Notice 1380E of 2023, and further invitation of the said elected Members of Parliament, in terms of Government Gazette General notice 1406A of 2023, to make and subscribe to the Oath of a Member of Parliament, this letter seeks to notify you that —
“1. Any correspondence regarding any CCC Member of Parliament listed in the said General Notice 1380D of 2023 and General Notice 1380E of 2023 is to be directed to this office.
“2. Any communication or notification regarding any CCC Member of Parliament listed in the said General Notice 1380D of 2023 and General Notice 1380E of 2023, to Parliament shall come from this office.
“3 For the avoidance of any doubt, no other person is authorized to correspond or communicate with Parliament concerning CCC Members in Parliament.”
