The war veterans have brewed yet another shocker by backing plans for the formation of a coalition for the 2018 Elections. The veterans who were staunch supporters of President Robert Mugabe until last year have been growing more vocal and critical of the government. They are now reportedly working for the people of Zimbabwe and not for Zanu-PF
Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) spokesperson, Douglas Mahiya spoke to the Daily News yesterday saying:
Our message for 2018 is that people must be free to choose anyone they want, who they think is a good leader. That’s, after all, what we fought for.

As long as the coalition is going to represent the suffering masses of Zimbabwe, we are going to support it. But what we don’t need are people who create a special class so that they will enjoy life while people are suffering.
Zanu PF has created a bourgeois class which is enjoying life while people are struggling to get food and that is not good for our country. As you know, all our people suffered to liberate this country.
