“I am my own man”: Mutsvangwa responds to Mugabe, denies he is being sent by military bosses

Speaking to The Standard, Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) leader  Christopher Mutsvangwa dismissed allegations by President Robert Mugabe that he is being sent by military commanders to campaign for his ouster.

Said Mutsvangwa:

That accusation [that he is being sent by Mnangagwa backers] has no basis in neither fiction nor fact. If I could be my own man just after second year at the University of Rhodesia’s law faculty lecture room in 1975 to go and join Chimurenga, I can still be my own man today.If I could withstand battlefield combat against Rhodesia’s standard army and all other hardships, it means I have my own resolve of mind and body. That accusation from a revered revolutionary icon should instead be directed at [Higher Education minister] Jonathan Moyo, a wartime deserter turned traitor, turned spy and lately thief of Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund [Zimdef] funds.
