Jameson Timba, an administrator of a faction of the Citizen Coalition for Change (CCC), strongly criticized Speaker of Parliament Jacob Mudenda for what he perceives as biased behavior favoring another faction within the opposition party. Mudenda recently announced the appointment of Sengezo Tshabangu to a prominent parliamentary position, a move that Timba alleges undermines the integrity of Parliament.

Speaking to the media in Harare, Timba accused Mudenda, who is affiliated with the ruling Zanu-PF party, of transforming Parliament into a farce and diminishing its reputation on the global stage. He asserted that Mudenda's actions were driven by a partisan agenda aligned with Zanu-PF's interests rather than upholding parliamentary norms and serving the people of Zimbabwe.

Timba further criticized Mudenda for allegedly disregarding proper procedures and accepting Tshabangu's list of appointees over others submitted by different CCC factions. He argued that Mudenda's decision was unlawful and resulted in the illegitimate appointment of parliamentary officials.

Timba emphasized that CCC would not recognize Tshabangu's authority over its parliamentarians and declared the party's intention to resist any attempts to subject its members to Tshabangu's leadership within Parliament. He indicated that CCC had made a resolution to this effect and planned to communicate it to its parliamentary caucus for implementation.
