Former cabinet minister and war veterans leader Christopher Mutvangwa has attacked Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko for telling War veterans minister Tshinga Dube to dump Mutsvangwa and his Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association.
Mphoko should behave like the VP of a law abiding country. He has a patchy war record that ended up with an AWOL to marital bliss in Maputo as his erstwhile comrades braved through the final heroic combat. Mphoko is (the) clandestine leader of Mthwakazi (and) believes in hazy hereditary accession to power and dynastic delusions. He has no reason to be in such a high post save for political caprice and chicanery.
On the other hand, Dube is a revolutionary democrat, who seeks legitimacy from the popular vote. His credentials are impeccable all the way to independence in 1980 and beyond.
