No constitutional crisis in Zimbabwe: Govt

Story by Oleen Ndori

GOVERNMENT has reiterated that there is no constitutional crisis in Zimbabwe, emphasising that internal contradictions in the opposition CCC do not translate to a national crisis.

In a statement this Friday, Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister, Dr Jenfan Muswere assured Zimbabweans and the global community that there is no constitutional crisis in Zimbabwe after the country successfully held general elections in August this year.

“We have taken note of the fallacy-ridden statement by Mr. Nelson Chamisa to try to rally Zimbabweans to despondency and to mislead the global community about a non-existent post-election crisis in our country. There is no constitutional crisis in Zimbabwe. There has never been such a crisis even as we headed towards the 2023 general elections.

“Mr. Chamisa has not subjected his election fraud claims to judiciary test in terms of the constitution which clearly spells out the legal processes to be undertaken in the case of a disputed election outcome. Therefore, his attention-seeking rants should be disregarded by all. We are past elections, and the focus is now on the accelerated implementation of the National Development Strategy 1 (NDS1),” he said.

The Citizens Coalition for Change has been embroiled in confusion, after one of the opposition party’s senior officials Mr Sengezo Tshabangu, who claims to be the CCC’s interim Secretary General, recalled 15 legislators from Parliament.

Chamisa has since appealed for engagement with the ruling ZANU PF party through a SADC facilitated dialogue.

The CCC party leader has also ordered opposition party legislators to disengage from Parliament only for some of them to attend the Committee on Standing Rules and Order this Thursday.
