The Christopher Mutsvangwa-led faction of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association has reaffirmed it’s support for Zanu PF and its leadership.
In a meeting held in Harare, between Mutsvangwa, who was in the company of other executive members Headman Moyo (vice chairman) and Douglas Mahiya (spokesperson), and Government which was represented by War Veterans Minister Tshinga Dube, the war veterans condemned corruption by Zanu PF members. They also warned Dube that if the current set-up was allowed to continue, the revolutionary party’s enemy would succeed in destroying it from within.
The war veterans also denied the authorship of the Blue Ocean document and the controversial July 21 communiqué which purported that the freedom fighters had withdrawn their support for President Mugabe and Zanu-PF. They however said that the two documents were the work of the enemy to draw a wedge between them and Zanu-PF.
