Citizens Coalition for Change vice-president Tendai Biti yesterday fingered activists linked to party president Nelson Chamisa for creating parody social media accounts to link him to self-imposed interim secretary-general Sengezo Tshabangu.
This comes after there have been allegations of a web of sellouts within the opposition party, with some senior officials being accused of trying to divide the party.
Biti yesterday spoke exclusively after a parody post on social media platform Twitter in Tshabangu’s name claimed that the two had met to discuss the party’s pertinent issues.
“I’m not interested. That account must be parody account that was created by Chamisa and his team. Just check it. I have not met Tshabangu and let me repeat that I am not interested,” Biti said yesterday.
The tweet claimed that Tshabangu had met Biti at a top hotel in Harare.
“Just after my interview on ZBC, I had dinner with one of our decorated change champions and learned man Hon Biti at Crowne Plaza, as he is a victim of dictatorship, we deliberated on pertinent issues that will add value to our struggle for democracy, transparency and constitutionalism,” the account claimed.
Tshabangu’s spokesperson Khaliphani Phugeni also disowned the account saying it was fake.
“I would think it’s a fake account,” Phugeni said.
