HARARE –  Citizen’s Coalition for change MP for Harare West, Joana Mamombe, has announced her decision to step down from her parliamentary position as Chairperson of the Environment Committee, effective immediately.

In a statement released yesterday, Mamombe cited the recent developments in Parliament, which she described as “rapid and unexpected”, as the reason for her decision. 

She specifically mentioned her appointment by Tshabangu as the new Chairperson of the Environment Committee, which she rejected as illegitimate.

Mamombe, who is currently in South Africa visiting a friend in hospital, stated that she was appointed to the position by President Chamisa on October 12th, 2023, and has been serving in that capacity since then. 

She expressed her disappointment and shock at the attempts to discredit her and undermine her leadership.

Despite stepping down from her parliamentary position, Mamombe remains a Member of Parliament for Harare West. Her team in Zimbabwe is preparing a formal rejection letter to be submitted to Parliament today.

In her statement, Mamombe thanked her constituents for their support and assured them that she remains committed to serving them. 

The development has sparked mixed reactions from political analysts and citizens, with some praising her decision as a principled stand against political manipulation, while others see it as a tactical move to avoid further conflict.
