On Monday, war veterans’ leaders from Bulawayo, Matabeleland South and North met in Bulawayo and resolved to support the Christopher Mutsvangwa-led Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association (ZNLWVA) executive.
ZNLWVA Bulawayo provincial chairman Cephas Ncube said that war veterans will hold an elective congress in 2019 as opposed by Zanu-PF to hold one soon. Said Ncube:
The ZNLWVA has a leadership that was elected in Masvingo. We elected Mutsvangwa to lead the association until the next congress, and it will remain just like that until 2019 when we hold our elective congress.
Ncube called the Patrick Nyaruwata and George Mlala led ZNLWVA as bogus and an offshoot of the G40 faction. Said Ncube:
That is a bogus association fronted by some crooks in the G40 . . . Also, anyone who does not have a ZNLWVA membership card must just shut up and not talk about the goings-on in the association. We have an executive and we are standing by it until the next congress in 2019. We have also instructed our district chairpersons not to tolerate any attempts to use our structures to front G40 shenanigans, and also this bogus war veteran’s structure.
