Caston Matewu, a member of the Citizens’ Coalition for Change (CCC) and legislator for Marondera Central, has made a bold statement threatening to expose sellouts who conspired against former party leader Nelson Chamisa.
In addition, Matewu has come to the defence of Chalton Hwende, the legislator for Kuwadzana East, who has been accused by Chamisa’s supporters on X (formerly Twitter) of plotting against the former CCC leader.
The CCC has been thrown into confusion following Chamisa’s resignation from the party last Thursday, in which he claimed that Zanu-PF and its subversive elements had infiltrated the organisation.
Expressing his views on X on Thursday, Matewu supported Chamisa’s assertion that CCC has been infiltrated by con artists. Matewu cleared Hwende of any wrongdoing, describing him as an honest and well-intentioned person. Matewu also pledged to reveal the sellouts within CCC who colluded with Zanu-PF to derail the party.
“I am prepared to be attacked and insulted for being myself. @hwendec is one of the most well meaning and honest persons I know. President @nelsonchamisa is correct, he had been surrounded by conniving con artists. I will soon expose them. Gloves off,” Matewu wrote.
In a separate development, Chalton Hwende shared on his official X account that he had engaged in a lengthy conversation with Nelson Chamisa regarding his resignation. Hwende reported that Chamisa had made it clear that he would not be returning to the CCC and would soon announce his future political plans.
Hwende stated that he would initiate consultations with the constituents of Kuwadzana East to seek guidance on his next steps. He concluded his update by affirming that Chamisa remains the best candidate to lead Zimbabwe towards positive change.
“On Tuesday I had a 2 hr conversation with President @nelsonchamisa and we discussed his resignation statement. He is clear that he will never return to the CCC and he will make an announcement on his next move in the near future. I agree with his decision. Tomorrow I will begin series of consultations with the people of Kuwadzana East so that I can be guided on the next move. President Chamisa remains our best foot forward to bring change in this country,” Hwende wrote.
