The Christopher Mutsvangwa executive has announced that war veterans aligned to them will not be attending the annual Zanu PF conference. The conference will be held next week in Masvingo. This will be the first time that war veterans will be absent from such a momentous event.
Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association spokesperson, Douglas Mahiya said:
They won’t be any war veteran there at the conference, and this is the first time that President Mugabe would address the Zanu PF conference without the war veterans,Christopher Mutsvangwa, the democratically-elected leader of the war veterans, is not wanted by this Zanu PF G40, which is afraid of us because we don’t represent their corrupt tendencies. This conference has no relevance because, we the people, who founded the struggle that led to the formation of the party, are now detached from it. We have been made to feel secluded from the values we founded, the ethos we fought for and introduced in Zimbabwe.
