CITIZENS Coalition for Change (CCC) leader Nelson Chamisa has vowed his party will never surrender to the ruling Zanu-PF no matter what.

This comes at a time the opposition has been accusing Zanu-PF and the government of abusing power to intimidate and silence political opponents.

Security services have also been accused of helping the ruling party maintain its stranglehold on power by brutally crushing dissenting voices.

Recently, Zanu-PF vice leader and ex deputy President Kembo Mohadi, addressing traditional leaders, said multiple political parties were not necessary for Zimbabwe because Zanu-PF has the capacity to fulfil people's needs.

Chamisa said despite everything, he will never give up to Zanu-PF and Zimbabwe will be a multiparty.

"Zimbabwe shall not be a one party state. We  will unite all Zimbabweans and build a formidable team ‘Team New Great Zimbabwe' of the able and competent from across all parties.

"We will be a happy and flourishing multiparty democracy. Zimbabwe, let us win big!" Chamisa posted on twitter.

Last week CCC spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere was trying by all means to make Zimbabwe a one party state.

"We know that is what Zanu-PF was budgeting for at this stage was that Zimbabwe will be a one party state. They tried all sorts of shenanigans but we remain steadfast, we are going to continue to march in the fight to win Zimbabwe for change," Mahere said.

Meanwhile, close to 2000 politically motivated cases of violence have been recorded so far and there are fears of a bloody 2023 general election.

This year alone, at least three CCC supporters, including Moreblessing Ali and Mboneni Ncube, have been killed by suspected Zanu-PF members.

On the other side, CCC lawmaker Job Sikhala has been behind bars for more than 150 days after he was arrested for allegedly inciting violence.
