Sengezo Tshabangu, the self-proclaimed interim Secretary General of the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC), has made bold claims regarding his involvement in securing the release of Job Sikhala from imprisonment.
Speaking on X, Tshabangu, known for his controversial decisions such as the recall of elected CCC MPs and councillors, emphasized his alleged role in Sikhala’s freedom, attributing it to his political maneuvering.
Tshabangu stated, “I want to clarify that I personally negotiated Job Sikhala’s release from prison because he was a political detainee. Similar to Tendai Biti’s case in 2008, his release required a political resolution. He’s my ally.”
Amidst heightened political tensions within the CCC and challenges to Advocate Nelson Chamisa’s leadership, Tshabangu’s declaration adds complexity to the internal dynamics of the party.
