Sengezo Tshabangu, the self-proclaimed interim secretary general of the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC), revealed today that he received a call from CCC leader Nelson Chamisa, who sought dialogue. However, Tshabangu conveyed that it was too late, as the matter was already in the courts, The Insider reported.

The CCC has taken legal action against Tshabangu for recalling several legislators and councillors, arguing that he lacks the mandate to do so since he is not a party member. Tshabangu asserts his CCC membership, emphasizing that the party emerged last year after Douglas Mwonzora, the leader of the Movement for Democratic Change-Tsvangirai, claimed the MDC-Alliance name. He disassociates himself from the "CCC Wapusa Wapusa" faction.

In a statement on his X handle today, Tshabangu said, "Yesterday, I received a call from Nelson Chamisa requesting a dialogue on the state of affairs in our movement. I informed him that it's too late, as the legal proceedings are underway. Let's respect our Judiciary."

When confronted about the impact of his actions on President Emmerson Mnangagwa's legitimacy, Tshabangu responded defiantly, saying, "Mina ngimazwangendaba mina." In response to Dexter Nduna's legal insight on sub judice, Tshabangu acknowledged, "Well said."

The judgment in the CCC and Tshabangu case is pending. Meanwhile, the CCC has authorized Chamisa to engage with Mnangagwa in an effort to address the political crisis in the country.
