Nelson Chamisa, former leader of the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC), has warned against prioritizing short-term gains over long-term consequences, citing the biblical proverb “Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel” (Proverbs 20:17).

His statement comes after Welshman Ncube announced his defection to ZANU PF, revealing an alliance between his party and the ruling party.
