Citizens’ Coalition for Change official Jameson Timba has challenged SADC leaders to provide Zimbabweans with a conclusive resolution to the disputed outcome of 2023 general elections. Timba’s remarks come as SADC prepares to hold its annual summit in Zimbabwe in August. New Zimbabwe reports that he maintained last year’s poll was rigged in favour of the ruling Zanu-PF party, a claim that has been echoed by various domestic and international observer missions. ‘The outcome of the election, which was condemned by all the civilised world, including our region, was not a reflection of the will of the people of Zimbabwe,’ he said, adding that citizens want answers from SADC. Party leader Nelson Chamisa has been exerting pressure on the regional bloc to nullify the poll outcome. President Emmerson Mnangagwa is set to assume the rotational SADC chairmanship at the event.
