Nelson Chamisa who leads the newly formed Citizens’ Coalition for Change (CCC) has expressed excitement after scores of social media users have received the move for the MDC Alliance to rebrand.
Citizens’ Coalition for Change (CCC) is a Zimbabwean political party that used to be known as MDC Alliance. The rebranding from MDC Alliance to Citizens’ Coalition for Change (CCC) was made ahead of the by-elections on 26 March 2022.
The resolution to rebrand from MDC Alliance to Citizens’ Coalition for Change (CCC) was made on 22 January 2022 by the party’s National Council.
The name MDC Alliance was abandoned after MDC-T leader Douglas Mwonzora claimed ownership of the MDC brand and all its variants.
The move by the Chamisa-led party received some endorsement on social media. Said Chamisa this Wednesday:
EVERYBODY & EVERYTHING TURNING YELLOW. OVERWHELMING ENDORSEMENT & FANTASTIC RESPONSE FROM YOU ZIMBABWE, THE CITIZENS. NOW BUILDING THE TEAM & SHARING THE DREAM. JOIN NOW! THE FUTURE IS YELLOW. ZIMBABWE IS YELLOW & RICH. THE JOURNEY BEGINS. We’re #1. THANK YOU ZIMBABWE. #
Party supporters posted their pictures in which they were wearing yellow which is the party’s new colour.
The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) and all its derivatives has been using red as its main and official colour since formation in 1999.
