Minister of War veterans, retired Colonel Tshinga Dube, has told Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko that he will follow the rules and respect an order from the High Court. This comes after Mphoko urged Dube to dump the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association led by Christopher Mutsvangwa. Mphoko reportedly said:
Cde Tshinga you are right, but do not include Matemadanda and Mutsvangwa in your issues. If you lean on those two, you will fall for sure
However, Dube responded with,
- - - Buy NetOne, Telecel Airtime on WhatsApp using EcoCash.
Send the word Airtime to +263 714 815 229
No extra charges. - - -
I do not lean on anyone. I do not lean on Mutsvangwa and Matemadanda. I just follow rules
The ZNLWVA led by Mutsvangwa is the legitimate association and we will continue to work with them. It is not about Mutsvangwa as an individual. If Mlala can go back to the others we will work with him. If he forces a congress and is elected to lead the ZNLWVA even if someone else is elected we will work with them.
If they want to form their own association, we will recognise them as well. The High Court ruled that we should recognise the leadership that is in place and that is what we are doing.
