Harare, Zimbabwe – Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) President Nelson Chamisa has promised to secure electricity supply and access to power for everyone if elected president in the upcoming elections.

In a tweet on Sunday, May 15, 2023, Chamisa said his #powerZimbabweplan would transition Zimbabwe into an energy surplus and energy self-sufficient country in no time.

“Give us a chance to guarantee a security of electricity supply and access to power for everyone,” he said.

Chamisa’s tweet was met with mixed reactions, with some people expressing support for his plan and others questioning his ability to deliver on his promises.

Transform Zimbabwe, another opposition party, criticized Chamisa for being “quiet” about the corruption that has plagued Zimbabwe in recent years.

“Mr. President why are you so quiet about all the corruption reports that come out?” the party tweeted. “From Gold Mafia, Sentry Report, the procurement statutory instrument. @edmnangagwa is engulfed by corruption enough to end his presidency. What’s going on sir?”

Chamisa responded to Transform Zimbabwe’s tweet, saying that he was “aware of much more on corruption going on than just what’s known and seen.”

“That’s just a drop in the ocean,” he said. “Leadership is in deeds not words, plans not platitudes!”

One of Chamisa’s followers, Wasu Wacho, expressed support for the opposition leader’s plan, but said that he needed to be more vocal about corruption.

“We trust your leadership sir always as ,God is in it,” Wacho tweeted. “I think people are asking you to be more vocal on such issues so they do not give up hope. These issues hit us to the very core as they affect our everyday lives from healthcare, education and the future of our children.”

Chamisa is the main opposition candidate in the upcoming elections, which are scheduled to be held in July 2023. He is running against incumbent President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

The elections are expected to be closely contested, with both candidates promising to improve the lives of Zimbabweans.
