The Zimbabwe National Liberations War Veterans’ Association (ZNLWVA) has warned Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa despite recent assurances by President Robert Mugabe and his wife, First Lady Grace Mugabe, that his post was safe. Mugabe and Grace last week took turns to publicly declare their support for Mnangagwa during the Zanu-PF women’s league.
ZNLWVA spokesperson Douglas Mahiya yesterday told NewsDay that the recent declarations by Grace and Robert Mugabe were false. He said,
Nothing has changed. If anything, they want to push him into a false sense of security before striking when least expected. Experience tells us that the enemy is most lethal at times like these. Publicly they are making pronouncements that seem to indicate the war is over, but, in fact, they are preparing for a final devastating assault to deliver the killer blow.
