Joana Mamombe steps down from parliament position

Harare West Legislator Joana Mamombe has decided to step down from her position as Chairperson of the Environment Committee.

This follows the recent self-imposition of Senator Sengezo Tshabangu as the leader of the opposition in parliament.

This came after Zimbabwe’s Parliament reversed the appointments made by Jameson Timba in February this year.

Timba is the Chief Administrator of a CCC faction reportedly loyal to former party leader Nelson Chamisa.

Joana Mamombe and other MPs aligned with Nelson Chamisa came under pressure on social media to reveal their loyalty leading to Mamombe making this announcement;


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

It is unclear yet if she is quitting Parliament altogether or just stepping down from the post as Chairperson of the Environment Committee.
