Former cabinet minister and war veteran leader Christopher Mutsvangwa has launched a scathing attack on Home Affairs Minister Ignatius Chombo for entertaining rival war veterans faction led by Mandi Chimene and George Mlala at the Zanu-PF solidarity march yesterday. Chombo came under fire after he promised to look into allegations that Mutsvangwa and his executive were interacting with people expelled from Zanu-PF structures.
Mutsvangwa clearly did not appreciate this, and said that Chombo had no power to interfere in war veterans affairs. Said Mutsvangwa:
Too dull to grasp legal precepts, he accords recognition to Chimene and Mlala as they masquerade as leaders of war veterans in flagrant contempt of a High Court judgment.
An incompetent (former) minister of Local Government, he has turned urban centres into neighbourhoods of decay and crime. He has no single skyscraper to his credit after years of stewardship of the key ministry.
He has no iota of appreciation of the role of local and foreign capital and business in a modern national economy.
He has turned police offices to targets of public hate, ridicule and contempt.
