‘Dirty Dozen’ embraces gay rights.

The CCC for all’s not so hidden agenda has been exposed following Citizen Coalition Change Bulawayo candidates flooding Bulawayo with pro-homosexual fliers.


Residents in Bulawayo woke up to fliers from the CCC candidates announcing the embracing of the LGBTQ rights in line with the Human Rights agenda in their manifesto.


Emakhandeni-Luveve residents woke up with fliers from Discent Collins Bajila inscribed with the words; “My name is Discent Collins Bajila. I am contesting to be Emakhandeni Luveve Constituency MP in line with HUMAN RIGHTS agenda in our party Manifesto. Once elected into Parliament, I wish to fight for rights of anyone including LGBTQ rights.”


He continued, “Gays and lesbians are people too! Let’s create a country everyone is allowed to make choices”


He exhorted people of the Constituency to vote for him if they are with him in saying gays and lesbians have rights too.


His was not an isolated action as Entumbane-Njube and Cowdray Park residents also received similar fliers.


Dubbed the Dirty Dozen following their clandestine Nomination Court processes, the CCC candidates seem to be going to great lengths to please their Western sponsors by embracing gay rights which Zimbabweans generally frown upon.


The country’s laws also prohibit any homosexual activities and President ED Mnangagwa is on record saying he will not be fighting for anything deemed unconstitutional.


The European Union and United States have been critical of countries who are anti-gay rights with several African countries sanctioned or threatened with sanctions.


The Nelson Chamisa led opposition’s embracing of LGBTQ rights as part of their campaign is seen as a move to please EU and US electoral observers currently in the country.
