The polls were called after Sengezo Tshabangu, who claims to be interim CCC secretary general, recalled over 20 sitting legislators and dozens over councillors claiming they had ceased to be party members.

The recalls, blamed on Zanu PF’s meddlesome hand by CCC, are also linked to opposition internal fissures.
