Breaking News: Mamombe Resigns from Parliament

By Lloyd Takawira

Harare, Zimbabwe – In a sudden and unexpected move, Joana Mamombe has resigned from her position as Member of Parliament for Harare West.

Mamombe, who was recently appointed back to be the portfolio committee chair on the environment, expressed that she was shocked at the recent appointment by Tshabangu as the new Chairperson of the Environment Committee, a position she has held since October 2023. She vehemently rejected Tshabangu’s leadership, calling him an “imposter” and stating her unwavering support for President Chamisa.

Citing the recent developments, Mamombe announced her resignation.

It remains to be seen how many members of the CCC party will remain in Parliament after Tshabangu is appointed leader of both Parliament and the Senate.

Below is Mamombes letter

Dear Harare West,

I hope this message finds you well🙏🏾.

The recent developments in Parliament have been rapid & unexpected. What transpired yesterday in the House has come as a complete shock to me.
I am currently in South Africa visiting a friend in the hospital battling with Cancer.

It is with a heavy heart that I address the attempts by some within the democratic space to use these parliamentary events to discredit me.
Let me be clear: Tshabangu is an imposter and is not my leader. I unequivocally REJECT his appointment as Chairperson of the Environment Committee. I have been serving in this post since October 12th, 2023 following my appointment by President Chamisa.

In light of these recent developments, I find it necessary to step down from my parliamentary position. I believe it is best to allow those who deem Tshabangu fit to take my place.

While I am away, my team in Zimbabwe is organizing a formal rejection letter to be submitted to Parliament this afternoon.

Thank you 🙏🏾

Yours in service,

Joana Mamombe
