Commander Defence Forces (CDF) General Constantino Chiwenga has been accused of handpicking expelled Zanu-PF member Christopher Mutsvangwa to lead the war veterans association while claiming that he had been chosen by President Robert Mugabe. The accusation was made by First Lady Grace Mugabe at the Youth Interface Rally in Bindura on Saturday. Said Grace Mugabe,
I want to tell you the truth about Mutsvangwa. He was not elected. We are constantly being intimidated and threatened by Mutsvangwa that Mnangagwa has the support of the army.
Mutsvangwa akanotorwa uko naChiwenga akanzi president ndovarikuda iwewe (Mutsvangwa was brought by Chiwenga and told that the president wants you to lead the war veterans).
President havana kumbobvira vadaro (the president never said that). President is a very democratic person.
So, Mutsvangwa deserved to go. He deserved to leave this party. Nekuti iny’any’a (he is troublesome). Haana kukwana (He is not normal). Pasi naye (down with him)
When asked for comment Mutsvangwa said:
I am a revolutionary. I don’t comment on hyperactive nonentities. The man who mattered most, the president, dispensed with frivolities and made quite a refreshing speech today (yesterday) in Bindura when he talked about real challenges that we face in building the modern statecraft.
