Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) leader Nelson Chamisa has dismissed media reports claiming that he recently met MDC-T leader Douglas Mwonzora and pledged to form a coalition ahead of the 2023 elections.
A local daily publication on Friday reported that Chamisa and Mwonzora met at a hotel in Harare this week and reached an agreement whose details were not revealed.
However, responding to one of his Twitter followers who had said CCC should not engage in dialogue with Mwonzora at any stage, Chamisa said:
It’s April fools… Ignore the lies. It’s all fake, falsehoods and propaganda. We’re clear!
Chamisa and Mwonzora went their separate ways in 2020 after the Supreme Court ruled that Chamisa had illegally taken over the MDC-T presidency in 2018.
Mwonzora was later voted MDC-T president and claimed the MDC Alliance name and symbols, prompting Chamisa to launch CCC in early 2022.
