War veterans minister Retired Colonel Tshinga Dube has defended his predecessor Christopher Mutsvangwa, saying that Mutsvangwa and his executive never attacked President Mugabe. Mutsvangwa was fired from Cabinet and Zanu-PF after unnamed war veterans wrote a stinging communique which was very critical of President Robert Mugabe’s administration of the country.
I hear they are complaining about my relations with Mutsvangwa and his comrades. They say I support him but am I the one who elected them? No
So, they say they have a case to answer but the court has cleared them. Does it mean the courts have failed to clear them for a year now, so does it mean the charges were trumped up?
If so, what I know is that if somebody has a case to answer, we have the CIO (Central Intelligence Organisation), military police, CID and Pisi (Police Internal Security Intelligence), so you mean all these people are failing to get somebody who wrote the document that led to their expulsion? I don’t think they can fail to arrest that person,
The day the court will find them (Mutsvangwa-linked war veterans) guilty, that’s when we will call for a congress, but it’s not the duty of the ministry to choose the leaders of war veterans but the war veterans on their own,
