The Christopher Mutsvangwa-led Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association executive has warned President Robert Mugabe that if he contests the 2018 elections, they could once again campaign for an opposition candidate.
War veterans’ secretary-general Victor Matemadanda told the Daily News,
We are happy Mliswa won and Zanu PF should know that we are plotting another Norton for 2018 after realising that Zanu PF in its current state cannot be the vehicle with which the people’s aspirations can be realised, hence we will back a party that will field a candidate that we feel is incorruptible. We are going to support anyone who is going to represent the people’s aspirations with the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association (ZNLWVA) acting as a fair referee in the election. Should we come to the conclusion that there is none among the candidates that the parties will have fielded, we are in the process of amending our constitution ahead of our congress, and there the association will decide if it seconds its own candidate without it necessarily turning into a political party.
