Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association (ZNLWVA) spokesperson Douglas Mahiya has said that Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa must not be denied his chance to rule. He revealed that if war veterans would rather opt for a “stick” if Mnangagwa was thwarted.
Speaking in Chitungwiza last week, Mahiya said:
We agreed there that the civilian structure would be religiously followed with no attempt to stop each other. That is why Emmerson (Mnangagwa) is quiet. We must respect the sacredness of the structure of the revolution which even caused the deaths of our gallant sons and daughters.
This country does not belong to Mahiya, where if I end my term of governance, I will handover to Mai Mahiya. We are going to use the mass-line. For 37 years? We will not be fooled again. The thing is bigger than what you know. If they don’t want Mnagwagwa,then we as war veterans will vote for a stick instead
