The Citizens Coalition for Change is not leaving anything to chance when it come to 2023 general election including the safety of its supporters. Prompt by the recent abduction and violence in Nyatsime and Kwekwe as well as some parts of Masvingo , the supporters have started an initiative called Rapid Response Network System.
The project is a brainchild of a US based opposition staunch supporter and web developer called Mr. Freeman Chari. He describe the system as a technology solution to help pro-democracy volunteers safely campaign and organize in Zimbabwe.

Teams of volunteers close to you are dispatched to ensure that you are safe and accounted for.
When you sign up to join the platform, you’ll receive updates about ways to take impactful action:
