HARARE – Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) leader Nelson Chamisa has expressed optimism that the opposition will win next year’s elections, given the “surge” of opposition victories in the SADC region for the past two years.
This follows the opposition party’s victories in recent elections in Zambia, Malawi and more recently Lesotho.
With the country scheduled to hold elections in 2023, Chamisa expressed his exuberance through a tweet congratulating the people of Lesotho for embracing the wave of change.
Final results of the general elections held in Lesotho last week showed that the Revolution for Prosperity, an opposition party formed six months prior to the polls, won 56 out of 120 seats in parliamentary elections.
However, in Zimbabwe the opposition faces an uphill task in removing the ruling ZANU PF with elections drawing closer while decisive reforms have not been implemented.
