Citizens Coalition for Change spokesperson Promise Mkwananzi has dismissed as fake claims that the national leadership elected at the 2019 MDC Gweru National Congress will take control of the party.

This comes after Nelson Chamisa resigned as CCC leader.

In a statement, Mkwananzi said CCC did not exist in 2019, nor does it have a structure called the Standing Committee.

He urged party members to wait for official communication through verified social media accounts.

“CCC was formed on the 24th of January 2022 and only celebrated its 2nd anniversary a few days ago.

“The party did not exist in 2019 and does not have a structure known as the Standing Committee. The party is yet to conduct its inaugural congress,” said Mkwananzi.
