Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) leader Christopher Mutsvangwa was booed when he spoke about his expulsion from Government and blaming the G40 Faction, while making a presentation at the late Vice-President Joshua Nkomo memorial lecture at Witwatersrand University in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Saturday.
When contacted by NewsDay for a comment, Mutsvangwa said that those who booed him were tribalists while others were instructed by Jonathan Moyo to do so. Said Mutsvangwa:
One group, Mthwakazi was tribal and DD (Dabengwa) dispensed with that bigotry. A few others were Jonathan Moyo G40 cohorts from Tsholotsho and the convener called upon them to engage me outside of the lecture. Jonathan Moyo is the wartime deserter-turned-traitor-turned spy. That is why (what) I said last Saturday offended the few G40 cohorts in the crowd. I juxtaposed and laid the patriotic and first hand histography of Soul Ndlovu’s lecture presentation to the grotesque distortions of Jonathan Moyo (and) even Munyaradzi Huni in his G40 inspired Chimurenga Chronicles. That is what piqued Jonathan Moyo infiltrators (sic).
Mutsvangwa commended Dumiso Dabengwa for trying to normalise the situation when he was booed during his presentation.
